SAKE SWEETNESS

DESCRIPTION

Determined to maintain the culture of wooden barrel brewing for the next 100 years, Imayotsukasa Sake Brewery commissioned craftsmen to build a pair of new 4,000-liter-class wooden barrels. The sake brewed in those barrels has been named “Hitoto Kito Hitotoki” —Japanese words meaning “human, wood and moment.”.A unique offering which has been fermented in a traditional wooden sake tank. This lends vanilla and cedar notes, on top of straw and fragrant mushrooms. A slight pleasant astringency can be found on the palette, and the flavors are gentle and calming.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

Freshly squeezed and fresh unfiltered raw sake. A fruity aroma like banana and a pleasant taste of rice spread in your mouth. It is the one with a "presence" that you can enjoy the delicacy and complex taste unique to wooden tank.
