Tasting Notes: Achieving what no other sake brewery in history was able to accomplish, this rare and extremely limited bottling by Tatenokawa Shuzo of Yamagata Prefecture was the first and only sake of it's kind. Many questioned the necessity of toppeling the challenge of brewing sake with rice grains polished to 1%, but it was precisely because there existed a challenge to overcome which other brewers could not crack that toji Junpei Sato, Tatenokawa Shuzo's master sake brewer, rose to respond. What he then found could only be experienced when attempting to brew with these incredibly special 1% rice grains. The name "Komyo" is a wish to "surpass unprecedented challenges and open doors to new experiences in the bright, yet-unimagined world of Sake". We humbly invite the curious to luxuriate in the transcendence and satisfaction brought forth by this sake made in this unbelievable new world.
Brewery: Tatenokawa Shuzo (founded: 1832)
