This sake is named after the Japanese carp (koi). The colourful fish not only is thought to have originated in Niigata prefecture, where Imayo Tsukasa is based, but it’s also a symbol of refined taste and majesty. It can also be considered the opposite of the more common “goldfish”, a fish that was associated with the sake that was normally served in bars centuries ago. The reason for the nickname was that back in the days it was a common practice to dilute sake a lot in order to gain maximum profit out of it, to the point that even a fish could have survived in it. But Imayo Tsukasa never resorted to these unscrupulous methods, and has always proudly served only top quality products at their best!
