In the early 2000s, brewers started listing polishing ratios on daiginjos to entice consumers (i.e. 50%, 23%, etc.). Turning this notion upside its head, Tenzan Brewery released this bottle and wrote "75" on their label. This caught people’s attention, for its punk rock attitude towards highly-polished daiginjos. This bold, juicy sake reminds me of grappa and drinks best at room temperature alongside BBQ or steak. Local take-out recommendation: Beef Curry at Teni Kitchen next door to us.
