It took Tamaasahi Brewery 10 years to master the technique used to brew this sake, called "shubo shibori": the extraction of the sake (from the sake lees) happens all at once after the fermentation starter is added to the main mash of rice, koji, and water. This process results in unique umami, sweetness, and acidity that are stressed further in this special release for MIRAI SAKE.
