Established in 2007 on Granville Island, Artisan Sake Maker is known as a unique commercial winery that produces award winning, hand-made, small batch and fresh sake. Our brand name “OSAKE” is widely recognized as “Canada’s first locally produced fresh premium Sake”, and its popularity has reached across the country and beyond.

Sake is a traditional Japanese beverage that is produced through the fermentation of rice. Currently, a majority of sake production in Canada depends on the import of rice from other countries such as Japan and the US. Since 2009, Artisan SakeMaker has been tirelessly working on the research for producing rice locally in BC. In 2015, after seven years of trials and technical improvements, we reached our first milestone and produced our entire sake products from 100% Canadian contents.
