A new limited release for Dassai in 2023.
Made using Yamadanishiki rice milled down to just 8%, which is almost unheard of on the Australian market.
To make this sake, Dassai used ungraded (togai) rice, seeking to both support local rice farmers and act in an environmentally conscious manner by ensuring the use of rice that may otherwise go to waste. Fortunately, becasue it has no shinpaku (starchy core), the rice can be pushed to its absolute limit in terms of milling, hence the 8% rate.

From Dassai themselves: "Not Wanting to Waste Even a Single Grain of Rice. Yamada-Nishiki is a sake rice that, even when grown with the utmost care by the best farmers, inevitably produces 5~10% of Togai (out-of-grade) rice. With tears, farmers have been selling Yamada-Nishiki Togai rice at low prices. Thus, the existence of Togai rice is a burden which bores down heavily upon farmers. We, Asahi Shuzo, are a sake brewery that strives in symbiotic relation with farmers. Therefore, dealing with Togai rice, is a challenge which we cannot abandon. We have searched endlessly for a way to utilize Togai rice. Finally, we have come to a decision. It takes tremendous effort, But the result is a luscious sake that can only be accomplished with Togai rice.
