TASTING NOTES:
This highly polished sake is extremely delicate and finely etched—with pristine notes of honeysuckle, white nectarine, river stone and tarragon. It’s an elegant and layered sake, with a light body and clean finish.

ABOUT SHIRATAKI SHUZO:
Shirataki Brewery was established in 1855, and Takaki Matsumoto is the seventh generation of the family to carry on the brewing traditions. This sake is the most polished and limited production of Shirataki Shuzo’s bottlings, and is named in the Toji’s honor.

Shirataki Shuzo is located in the heart of the Japanese Alps called “Snow Country” in the Niigata Prefecture. Each spring the snowpack melts providing an abundance of clear natural spring water. This water runs through a coal seam providing a natural filtration process that accentuates the taste and quality of the water. This very soft water is the secret behind the very light, elegant, pretty style of sake made at Shirataki. The town of Echigo Yuzawa is home to “Koshi Ikari” a famous high-quality table and sake rice brand in Japan, as well as “Koshi Ibuki, which is used in their light elegant style sake and “Koshi Tanrei” which is used in their sake with richer fuller flavor.
