About Joto Sake
Founded in January, 2005, Joto Sake LLC is one of the leading artisanal sake importing companies in the U.S. The company was started by its President, Henry Sidel, whose career in the food and beverage industry and his passion for Japan led him to launch Joto Sake.
Henry fell in love with sake after visiting Sakagura restaurant in New York City in 2001. From that point on, he visited Sakagura, bought sake at retail, started taking tasting notes and began developing the business plan for Joto Sake.
In late 2004, Henry left his job as International Marketing Director for Belvedere and Chopin Vodkas and incorporated Joto Sake in early 2005. By August, 2005, Joto received its first container and started selling in the U.S.
In 2006, Henry expanded Joto’s national distribution. In 2007, Midori Nakazawa joined Joto Sake and in 2009, Stefanie Sowers came on board. The company now sells in over 30 states, through top distributors in each market. Joto imports from 8 small, artisanal sake breweries, or “sakagura” all in different regions of Japan.
