Sato no Homare Daiginjō Red Label
Superb sake from the oldest brewery of Japan. Almost 900 years of history, but constantly in the lead. Its ruthless no-compromise stand has led to extremely delicate sake with enchanting aromas. The elegance and balance of this exquisite sake are simply magic and confirm the unrivalled status of Sudō Honke as the best brewer of daiginjō sake. Unpasteurised, unfiltered, natural yeast. Store in refrigeration, drink cold. The brewery Sudō Honke was founded sometime before 1141 and thus can easily boast of being the oldest functioning brewery in Japan. No trace of conservatism though, as they took the lead in the postwar reintroduction of pure and unpasteurised sake. They have moreover developed a policy of producing only ginjō and daiginjō sake, although their definitions of ginjō and daiginjō are considerably higher than usual. Their strict hygienic standards have turned the brewery into a laboratory and their sake into products of extreme elegance, but also a fragile elegance, which makes that all Sato no Homare sake should be stored in refrigeration and should be consumed within two weeks after opening.
