Yoshino-Shuzo was established in 1830 during the Tenpō era of late Edo period.
It is said that the founder, Sajiemon started a sake brewing business as a branch family of Sagoemon in Shimoueno-mura. However, there is a suspicion that the family had already been brewing sake before the Tenpō era as supported by an ancient certificate-like document for sake brewing issued in 1803. While the Tenpō era followed a course of decline, Sajiemon, later renamed to Sajiro Yoshino, led to a successful family business. Therefore, he is called the restorer of Yoshino-Shuzo.
