Kamotsuru Sake Brewing Company

Patrick, Hugh T.

Hiroshima-based Kamotsuru Sake Brewing Company not only has a long history but is a successful producer in a slowly declining industry. It has a well-known brand, which Prime Minister Abe served President Obama in Tokyo. This essay looks at the company and at the challenges it and its industry face from the changing nature of the beverage market generally and the alcoholic beverage market in particular.
