"JIZAKE" is the sake which is made in local area and in small amount. So usually JIZAKE is consumed only in the area around its brewery. Many Japanese sake fans love JIZAKE because of its quality , character and history.
Niigata is named "JIZAKE KINGDOM" because there are so many small breweries which makes good quality sake.
