Hiyaoroshi are sakes that have been pasteurized once in the winter, aged through the summer, and released in the fall without a second pasteurization. Brewers skip the second pasteurization because by the fall, temperatures are cool enough so that the sake will not spoil in hot weather.
Shichida throws us a curveball with their fresh hiyaoroshi, with fruit flavors like peach, and juicy apple (Shichida's sakes are typically more earthy and rustic). These fruity flavors complement grilled red meats like wagyu, and pork. Brewed with rare Aiyama sake rice, native to Hyogo, enjoy this limited hiyaoroshi while it's fresh!
