In 1873, Wahei Miura invented its own sake and named it Kamotsuru, from which the brewery became a company in 1918. Not only water quality but also rice polishing techniques are essential to make a fine sake. To overcome the limitations of a watermill powered grinder, the company bought a rice polishing machine developed by the company Satake, a technological advancement that raised the polishing rate to 75%, a first for that time. Kamotsuru won the first prize at the 1900 Paris Exposition and, in 1970 and for 18 years in a row, this particularly valued sake of an incredible quality got awarded a gold medal at the National New Sake contest. In April 2014, when Shinzo Abe met with President Obama, Kamotsuru sake was served, making the already well known name of Kamotsuru even more renewed.
