Heaven of Joyous Delight
Joyous and lyrical, with lilting notes of peach and melon. This is an ultra-premium shizuku sake, gravity-pressed and aged for at least two years.
Akita Brewing Company
Akitabare is brewed in the northern Tohoku region, in an area with the highest per-capita sake consumption in Japan. The brewery takes pride in its traditional methods, allowing fermentation to proceed at low temperatures for up to 25 days before pressing. The result is a family of clean, pared-down sakes with excellent balance and structure. Much of the work is done by hand in small lots, and some of the equipment has been in continuous use for nearly a century.
