This is a masterpiece created by a sake brewery that takes care to stabilize and balance the sake by holding it at -10 degrees Celsius after brewing, and then raising the temperature and aging it to develop its umami flavor.

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)

Tasting comments

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

    (chilled)
    While retaining the Ginjo aroma, a light and fragrant aged aroma wafts through the air. The taste is well-balanced, and it doesn't make a strong statement, but fades away slowly leaving a beautiful aftertaste.
    The moderate bitterness transforms into umami as it warms up, increasing the sense of volume.

    (warm)
    The slightly charred aroma of pot-cooked rice spreads through the rich flavor, and the acidity supports that flavor.The taste is sharp, but the umami lingers for a long time, inviting you to take another bite. Even if you try aging it a little more after purchasing it.

  • Hidekazu Ishiwata
    (Former National Tax Bureau Chief Appraiser)

    (chilled)
    Pale yellow. At the top, it has a slightly stuffy scent.
    It has a sweet and light maple syrup (sotolon) scent.
    It has a good balance of subtle sweetness and acidity, with a light bitter taste.

    (warm)
    A standing incense that combines the aroma of banana-like (isoanyl acetate) ripe fruit and ripened aroma.
    Sweet aromas like caramel and vanilla.
    It has a gentle sweetness on the palate, with a light bitter accent on the finish.


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

    (chilled)
    The scent is faint. It looks like it will be more rounded if you raise the temperature a little.
    Rather than just having one drink, it's the type that you want to drink all the time without getting tired of it. Very smooth.
    I would like to pair it with relaxing red bean liver or Shirako tofu.

    (warm)
    The aroma of freshly cooked rice rises, with a faint nutty aroma. A beautiful aftertaste with just the right amount of acidity, and the sweetness and umami that spreads throughout your mouth. A drink that makes you want to keep drinking.

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

    (chilled)
    A rich aroma similar to cooked rice.
    The bitter taste and the smoothness of the liquid itself are balanced.
    It has the potential to become even better. Warm and smooth. A sake cup is also fine.


    (warm)
    You can feel the gentle plump aroma of grains and the aroma of maple syrup.
    The sweetness, umami, and bitterness are balanced, and the finish is soft and voluminous, leading to a lingering finish.
    Seafood tempura with tsuyu sauce and grated ginger.
