This sake is made with the ancient kimoto method, and has spent 18 years resting in the brewery. Incredibly complex with powerful notes of preserved plums, mushrooms and warm spices, balanced with just enough acidity and sweetness. Medium body with a dry and bitter finish. Good things come to those who wait.
The leading light in natural sakes, and one of the rare natural sake breweries around, Masaru Terada is the 24th generation kuramoto of an almost 350 year old brewery. As such, he believes in making sakes that hark back to centuries past. The brewery employs kimoto and ancient bodai-moto methods, using natural yeasts that inhabit the air.
