EMW and Four Fox Saké from Osaka Prefecture Sign an Import and Distribution Agreement for Mainland China
 

Shanghai, May 28th, 2021 – EMW Fine Wines (Shanghai) Limited (EMW) and Distinguished Den Distribution Limited (Four Fox Saké), the Osaka Prefecture saké brewer, signed a new Import and Distribution Agreement for Mainland China.
 

''

 

Four Fox Saké is a stunning blend of tradition, function and modernity. Instead of focusing on the brand history, it stands apart from the rest, saying that saké is not a drink to only be enjoyed in restaurants; it is to be celebrated everywhere, in a class of its own.

The bottle of Four Fox Saké is a tribute to Inari Okami, the god of Rice, Saké, Swordsmiths and Foxes in Japanese mythology. Four Fox Saké represents this purity and perfection.

Olivier Six, COO, EMW Fine Wines


“The first time I came to know Four Fox Saké, I was deeply impressed by its unique tasting profile and exquisite modern design. The covid-19 postponed our collaboration but I'm really glad that we are starting now our cooperation and can't wait to taste Four Fox Saké in our partner venues. We're proud of being part of an incredible fast growing market, where opportunities are huge for Saké category.”

Michael Campion, Managing Director, Four Fox Saké


“Ever since we met EMW at Vinexpo Shanghai 2019, we knew that we wanted to work with them. We are delighted to find that we are sharing one common vision for a modern and exciting saké brand in China, and believe they will be the best partner to realize our potential.”

The brewery has been in continuous production for almost 200 years and kept in the same family all this time.

Domaine Sainte Eulalie and Champagne Edouard DUVAL – one of the only historical Domaine still standing in Champagne

 

Established in the Côte des Bar region, Champagne Edouard DUVAL is crafted from the best selected grapes solely coming from its own estate – the Domaine Sainte Eulalie. This ancient Priory was founded almost a thousand years ago, in 1095, by the monks of Cluny Abbey. It holds a unique position in Champagne as one of the only historical estates still in existence with 28 hectares of contiguous vineyards producing Champagne. All the grapes are estate grown using sustainable farming methods and certified “Viticulture durable en Champagne” (VDC).

 

Champagne Edouard DUVAL is produced with very little intervention, long cellar aging, and low dosage to best express the unique terroir and to fulfill the guiding vision, “To perpetuate a wine cultivation respectful of Cluny Abbey’s heritage in each of our champagnes.”
