This sake was brewed in 1988, or 1988 .
There was a long period when most of the sake and soy sauce consumed in Kyushu was sweet. Taking this into account, it becomes clear why this mellow and well-balanced alcoholic drink was named ``super dry''.

The long aging process brings out the mellow flavor and flavor, making it a drink that can be enjoyed in a wide range of ways, from a variety of dining situations to drinking alone.

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)

  • Nobuhiro Ueno
    (Mature and Warm Bar Master / Toki SAKE Association Executive Director)

    Gentle and soft caramel aged aroma with a slight nickel. Chamfered by the passage of time, it is extremely well-balanced and unobtrusive. Aged enough to keep drinking.
    The aftertaste is not strong, but it is pleasant and dissolves neatly.

  • Hidekazu Ishiwata
    (Former National Tax Bureau Chief Appraiser)

    Beautiful bright yellow. The scent is sweet at the top.
    The sweetness of sotolon and caramel aroma. Attack is strong.
    Slightly sharp acidity and alcohol give it a sharp and firm feel.

  • Akiko Toda
    (Director of ITTEKI, Japan Sake and Meat Research Institute)

    Gold to amber color.
    A slightly smoky scent with hints of apricot and fig. It enters the mouth smoothly, with just the right amount of sweetness, and the bitterness tightens in the second half.
    It would be interesting to pair it with dishes using mushrooms, especially porcini mushrooms.

  • Yuji Yamauchi
    (Yushima Tenjinshita Sushi Hatsu 4th generation / 1st JSA SAKE DIPLOMA competition winner)

    The caramel feel, swelling, and alcoholic feel are well balanced, allowing you to experience a ``smooth and fragrant'' experience. A masterpiece that you will want to take your time to enjoy.
