Imada Fukucho Legacy 500ml
Extremely limited edition sake using 3 stage mashing method (Sandan-Jikomi) with water from 3rd stage replaced with competition spec Yamada Nishiki daiginjo which was pressed using the expensive ‘shizuku’ method (where the sake from moromi is not pressed using a yabuta or fune but put in a bag and allowed to drip slowly into containers). It has big impact on production cost but brings exceptional flavour. 6 bottles available at time of writing.
