The Importance of Fundamental Quality Before Sake Maturation

Sake that has been aged over time is also commonly referred to as just "old sake," but the definition is vague, with some vendors selling surplus sake calling it “old sake” because it has been sitting around for a while. That means that the quality of old sake on the market varies widely, and some people avoid it, saying it is stale or lumpy.

Beyond the Boundaries of "Aged Sake": Venturing into Uncharted Territory and Creating New Tastes

Sake, as a whole, does not just become more delicious with age. In order for sake to become more delicious over time, the original must have a solid quality that will survive the passing years. In other words, sake must be brewed from the beginning with the assumption that it will "improve with time" and have the quality to withstand that duration. The environment in which the sake is matured is then meticulously curated to ensure that its flavor changes gradually.

The process of aging sake is like a dialogue with the drink itself, anticipating the ever-changing flavors ahead of time. The result upturns what is considered as "old sake.” It has a cool and clear taste that wasn’t merely dormant during the passage of time, but sharpened to reveal the original contours of a high-quality sake’s flavor.

Enjoy it as though you are exploring the essence of sake in its mellowness. This is a new realm of deliciousness that even those of us who have been brewing sake for decades did not know existed. It should be experienced only by those who have tasted a variety of sake and know how to enjoy it. There is still unexplored territory in the world of maturation, and we will deliver a product that will prove it to you.
