Aged for more than 40 years, this sake is proof that aged sake can be delicious, to us it almost tastes like a tokay; from a company specialising in aged and unique sake well before most breweries.
Kidoizumi was founded in 1879 and have been making high quality koshu for over 50 years, releasing their first 9 year old sake for sale in 1971. Kidoizumi first place their new saké in Isshobin (1.8L bottles), age them for a minimum of 15-20 years before then filtering and rebottling them in 720ml.
The palate has a pleasant initial acidity before showing umami, caramel and chocolate flavours; an outstanding savoury and rich koshu.
This Saké is:
Junmai (no added alcohol)
Koshu (aged saké)
Hot-Yamahai (natural starter method)
