Nestled in the heart of Vancouver’s Granville Island, Artisan SakeMaker is a producer and purveyor of award-winning handcrafted local sake. Founded in 2007 by Masa Shiroki, who strives to spread a uniquely Canadian rice and sake culture while operating in a sustainable, locally-focused fashion. Here at Vancouver’s only sake winery tradition meets innovation; the result is a unique collection of rice wine products that’s distinctly Canadian. The winery’s small-batch OSAKE line of sake features both traditional interpretations and brow-raising bespoke offerings.

In 2015, after seven years of experimentation in rice production, processing and sake making, Artisan SakeMaker launched its first sake produced with 100% Canadian ingredients. The revolutionary new offering is a true Canadian expression of sake made to pair with the seasonal bounty and cuisine of the region.

Today Artisan SakeMaker remains committed to perfecting rice production in Canada and curating exceptional sake, with all actions rooted in the brand’s philosophy – sustainable, local and natural.
