Made from a local variety of naturally grown rice, and aged initially for about half a year at room temperature, this medium-bodied dry namazake (unpasteurized sake ) has a unique ricy, earthy aftertaste. Mutemuka Shuzō's owner was a pioneer when about thirty years ago, against strong opposition from his neighbour farmers who believed in spraying away any form of life, he introduced natural farming to his sake rice. The result is a very earthy dry sake with a chocolate aroma and aftertaste like no other. Drink cold, at room temperature, or warmed up (to enhance the chocolate aroma).
