Liquor Mountain Co., Ltd was established in 1990. It is still a young company, but its roots go back as far as 1897, the year when our founder Tashiro Yamane opened a rice store in Torahime-cho (now Gomura, Nagahama City, Shiga Prefecture). His successor acquired a liquor license and started up the liquor retail business in 1930.

I am the fourth descendant and took over the liquor license from the family business Supermarket Yamane, and established Liquor Mountain Co., LTD. I started my business as a tenant of the supermarket.

In 1991, we opened offices and a store in Torahime, Shiga Prefecture. A second store was opened as soon as 1992. Ever since, we have been expanding and now we operate more than 150 stores mainly stretching from the Kansai area to the Tokai area; our headquarters are now in Kyoto. In 2012, we established the Tokyo offices and entered into the wholesale business in Tokyo and the metropolitan area.

We import liquors and foodstuff from all over the world. Our enthusiastic and ambitious staff strive to pioneer "the new value of liquors and foods" . Our motto is "Be essential to your community" and we aim to reach the "top" of the industry.

We strive to develop and market liquors and foodstuff according to our philosophy to offer good quality liquors and provide a healthy lifestyle with the patronage of all those who support us. We aim at the co-existence between nature and society and the pursuit of quality, not only of the cheapest price.
