It is made using a different manufacturing method from regular sake, in which the entire amount is made with koji rice, and you can feel the rich sweetness, flavor, and elegant acidity derived from koji.
Great for after-dinner drinks and desserts. It also goes well with spicy dishes.

*Due to aging, ooze may occur. You can enjoy just the supernatant, but since the umami is concentrated in the lees, you can enjoy it even more if you mix it in. *Due to long-term storage in the bottle, mold will form on the mouth of the bottle. However, the silicone on the top of the lid does not affect the contents, so please wipe the mouth of the bottle clean before drinking (even wine that has been aged for a long time may have mold on it). However, the cork does not affect the wine itself)

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)

    It's a nice color and sparkles.
    The scent is fragrant all over the place. It also has the characteristic sweet aroma of Zenkoji-zukuri.

    It goes into your mouth gently, and the flavor slowly spreads in your mouth.
    It has sweetness, astringency, and umami, and although it is not very acidic, it has a good consistency. It is a drink that can be enjoyed on its own.

    It has a pleasant aftertaste. I want to enjoy it slowly in a dessert glass after a meal.
