- Deem Yourself as a Sake Lover?
Get to Know Koshu
- Koshu, or aged sake, is so different from regular sakes. While most sakes are pale in color, fresh and crisp, Koshu is intense and complex with deeper yellow color and nutty aromas. In fact, Koshu is rare because, without high acidity and tannins, most sakes cannot be aged long. Also, high skills and attention are needed during maturation, or unpleasant stale aromas like cardboard may emerge in the sake. And since lots of Koshu is aged for 3 years and made from Honjozo or Junmaishu, it makes Hakutaka Daiginjo Aged 15 more special and thoughtful. Deem yourself as a sake lover? Do give a try to such a fine sake.
