We launched this premium sake in 2015 in collaboration with contemporary artists.
Since its inception we have been honored to work with different Japanese contemporary artists each year.
When rice is highly polished, it becomes extremely difficult to cultivate koji, which makes it difficult to extract the umami derived from koji, but with KIZASHI, we succeeded in extracting 1.5 times the umami than Zankyo Super 7 which also has a 7% rice polishing ration.
We brew KIZASHI so its proportion of residual sugar falls in between that of NIIZAWA and Zankyo Super 7.
This will age beautifully when stored in a refrigerator.
It is a precious sake and we only brew 1000 bottles per year.
Each year we collaborate with a different artist, therefore the label differs each year.
