Released on a limited allocation, these 15 year aged sakes from Terada Honke are unpasteurized, undiluted, and unfiltered. This kimoto is best at room temperature to lightly warmed to enjoy its complex flavors of savory dried persimmon, walnuts, and lactic acid. An earthy aroma of black tea and deep golden color makes this koshu (aged sake) assertive and memorable.
Terada Honke was established over 340 years ago and are currently lead by 24th generation Toji Masaru Terada. They focus on extremely old-school brewing conventions; they brew using traditional yamahai and kimoto methods, sing while agitating the mash, rely solely on naturally occurring microorganisms which live at the brewery, and use as little machinery as possible, all while using pesticide-free rice. They even have a cafe on site at their brewery where they use their sake kasu and other byproducts to craft dishes and teach their guests about the magic of fermentation. True to Terada Honke form, this sake is a nama muroka genshu (unpastuerized, unfiltered, undiluted).
