iSaké x Kidoizumi Shuzo "Umami" Aged Saké

"Umami" saké is made in Chiba by the only brewery in Japan that uses the hot yamahai method.


In this slow-brew method lacto bactylus cultivated on the premises are added to a starter kept at a very high temperature. The result is a unique full bodied multi-layered taste. The brewery is also a pioneer in producing aged saké (koshu 古酒). Having started some fifty years ago with aging a large quantity of saké annually, it is one of the few breweries having this level of experience maturing saké. This vintage saké is the best way of demonstrating that premium saké can age and evolve just like a wine.


Made with Yamadanishiki rice, this saké offers a unique flavour experience; rich and with a deep taste of peach, violets, and a touch of hay, this is a full-bodied saké with a lot of strength. This vintage is best paired with stronger meats like game, or with dark fish like red tuna, and salmon.


*You can also age it further by yourself by wrapping with newspaper and storing in a dark, cool place.
