Sasaichi shuzo's most accomplished sake

72cl - alc. 17% vol.

About the brewery : Sasaichi Shuzo is based in Otsuki-shi, in the heart of Yamanashi prefecture. It was founded in 1661 as Hanadaya, then renamed Sasaichi Shuzo in 1919. Like most Kura factories, it modernised very rapidly during the 20th century, integrating a wide range of equipment to facilitate the sake-making process and moving irreversibly towards mass production. But very recently, in 2013, under the impetus of the younger generation, the company decided to do away with all this equipment and embark on a more qualitative and humane production path. The transition is being made by installing equipment designed not to automate production, but to take care in preparing the ingredients (one example being the use of the latest generation of rice washing machines, capable of producing 'dry steam'). The emphasis is on the preparation of the koji, and on each stage of the sake-making process, which is carried out by hand. Sasaichi Shuzo is no slouch when it comes to ingredients. It uses underground water from Mount Fuji ; the brewery has its own in situ spring called Gozensui. Similarly, the rice strains are ultra-qualitative, using locally-grown Yamadanishiki, Omachi and Yumesansui.
The return to traditional production methods was a real surprise, and is set to become one of the greatest success stories in the world of sake. Nobody imagined such a return to quality, but that was without counting on the talent of the young Toji Masakazu Ito, trained in the country's greatest kuras and very committed to his mission.
Dan means 'beginning', like a resurrection for this brewery. The sakes are part of a very interesting approach, because when creating new products, the toji thinks first and foremost about associations with food ! As a result, all Sasaichi Shuzo's sakes are more typical than overly expressive, with very reasonable fruity accents. In short, the ideal qualities to accompany a meal.

Detailed tasting notes : A premium sake with the acidity of Yamahai and the rich flavor of rice. To be savored for its deep, complex aromas, imbued with the delicate sweetness of Kame no o rice, polished to 38%, offering a mellow, subtle sweetness. This is the highest-quality, richest and umamiest sake in the Dan series.

Serving suggestions : Enjoy on its own or with fine food. Best drunk chilled.
