There is also sake in Japan that has the drops of the time it took to mature.
Just as France has a culture of aged vintage wine, Japan has a culture of aged sake since ancient times.
Old sake is a high-class sake that was used in imperial wedding ceremonies.
However, in the Meiji era, when the world war broke out, the liquor tax was turned to secure the national financial resources, and a heavy stone-making tax was imposed on the brewery. Since then, the sake brewery has no capacity to make old sake, which is indispensable for long-term storage and management, and the culture of aged sake has been lost from Japan.
"Old and old sake" is a premium select brand specializing in old sake that was established with the aim of recreating the aged sake culture, which was a traditional noble culture of Japan, together with craftsmen who continue to make old sake even today.
Buyers specializing in old sake who drank and compared more than 100 kinds of old sake visited sake breweries all over Japan and unearthed old sake that was aged for more than 10 years from the depths of the brewery. Along with wine sommeliers who are familiar with old sake, 41 brands from 19 prefectures with excellent taste and aroma are carefully selected.
It was highly evaluated by the sommeliers of "The Capitol Hotel Tokyu" and "Palace Hotel Tokyo" which won 4 stars in "Michelin Guide Tokyo 2020" and the restaurant manager of "Hotel Ryunakan Tokyo" which won 2 stars. It was.
By aging sake, it produces a gorgeous aroma and mellow taste like wine, and it changes into a sake that can be drunk very luxuriously in a wine glass.
