Elegance, provided by nature
With Shirin, raw sake rice is polished to 18% for a pronounced clarity of ﬂavor before storage in a mizunara Hokkaido Japanese oak barrel. Hokkaido, known for its pristine natural environs and rural charm, produces these oak barrels that imbue the sake with a forest-like aroma and open the door to a new world of sake.
A new elegance born of oak
Shirin promises layers of scent and ﬂavor. The ﬂavor is bold and tart in the mouth, smooth and creamy, with pleasant, smoky notes from oak cask storage, intriguing bitterness and hints of mineral. The ﬂavors are in superb balance, playing off the nuances imparted by oak casks for a truly novel experience.
Nine-day oak storage brings exquisite aroma
Stored as raw sake in oak barrels for nine days, Shirin unabashedly takes on woody nuance. A strong oak ﬂavor at three to four days melts into the sake at ﬁve or more, bringing ﬂavors that surprise even the brewers themselves.
Junmai sake based on the safety and security of using “Dewa no Sato” from Takahatacho Sake Rice Research Society. It has also been certified by the Yamagata Selection and the local Takahata brand. It is Neat scent, clean and smooth rich taste.
