It's inspiring to see Hatsumomiji Brewery in Yamaguchi Prefecture run by a team of women. Master brewer Abe-san is backed by a group of young women who studied sake brewing at the local high school. These women study the brewing process all without actually drinking the sake. Incroyable! They must be using all of their other senses to hone their skills to become great brewers as all of the bottles we get from Hatsumomiji always end up being best sellers.
This bottles is a special seasonal release. It is unpasteurized expressing aromas of yogurt and cream soda. Once you sip, get flavors of coconut, pina colada, powdered milk, and noyaux. This sake is also an arabashiri, meaning it's a sake that gets pressed during the beginning of the pressing process – this ends up having some of the lees in it, hence the creamy texture and rice-forward aroma. Get it while it's in season!
