At Kido Izumi Sake Brewery, we have developed a method called ``Tsatsuyama Haimoto One-stage Preparation'' in order to create sake with an acidic tone so that it can withstand long-term aging. It is made and aged.
AFS Old Reserve is based on a 1970s original sake, and by assembling a small amount of young alcohol, it is both gorgeous and mellow.
It pairs well with citrus fruits, especially oranges. From dishes like duck in orange sauce to orangette (orange peel chocolate) with a matching cacao, you can enjoy wonderful marriages.

Most important thing in storing Japanese Sake, both matured and fresh, is to shield your bottles from UV ray, thus we suggest store them in places where sunshine would not reach.
Also excessive vibrations could do harm to the quality of sake and should be avoided.
In order to prevent unexpected leakage, we recommend the bottles be kept upright, or liquid surface be below bottle-cap level.

Most after-dinner matured sake, with very dark colors, could be stored at room-temperature.
For other matured sake, if you would like to keep the maturation level similar to the level upon your purchase, or you prefer very slow maturation after purchase, we suggest store the bottles at temperature level similar to wine cellar (10-15 degrees centigrade) or below.

If you would like them to mature more, you could store them at normal-to-low room temperature (15-23 degrees centigrade). Storing in you closet during not-so-hot seasons and relocate them in the vegetable sections of your refrigerator during summer would be one option.

For orders from within Japan, we will send out the ordered items within 3 days from receipt of your order, except for festive seasons such as year-end holidays and golden week.
For orders from outside Japan, please make inquiry by mail (info@1910kan.com)
