The “Freshness Directly Sent! The “The Ototoi-shibori” series will go on sale around February 8 (Tuesday).We are currently accepting reservations at liquor stores in the Joetsu-Myoko area.
“The Ototoi-shibori” series was designed by Yamato Beverage, a beverage wholesaler located in Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture.This time, freshly pressed sake from Myoko Shuzo, a brewery in Joetsu City, and Chiyo no Hikari Shuzo, a brewery in Myoko City, will be on sale.
Freshly squeezed sake is clean and refreshing, with a naturally occurring slight carbonation-like roughness and fresh sweetness that can be felt in the mouth, followed by a spiciness and depth that can be enjoyed.
Unlike products distributed to the general public, freshly squeezed sake was said to be a privilege that only the brewers involved in sake making could enjoy.Various sake breweries have been selling sake with freshness as a selling point, but this is a new attempt by several breweries to sell the same product under the same name with the same concept of freshly pressed sake within three days.
Kazuhiro Tanaka, senior managing director of Yamato Beverage Co., Ltd. who planned the event, thought that freshly squeezed sake from the kettle at the brewery tasted good every time he drank it.I have been working on a plan to make this delicious taste available to the general public.And now, in collaboration with the two breweries, we are able to sell freshly pressed raw sake.
