Mr. Naohiko Noguchi (88 years old) is so-called "The God of Sake" as a living legendary sake Master Brewer and came back to sake industry again in 2017 since his second retirement in 2015. In 2008, he got "Ohjuhoushou" (黄綬褒章), a Metal with Yellow Ribbon from Japan government for his distinguished achievement as a sake Master Brewer. This Nama Junmai Daiginjo Premium is a special limited edition of 2018 vintage sake to celebrate his 70th anniversary of sake making. This "Nama" (生) (no pasteurization) and "Muroka" (無濾過) (unfiltered) sake has been delicately brewed at below 0℃ degree temperature.
Due to his truly high popularity, Noguchi's sake will be out of stock very quickly within a couple of weeks after becoming available and it is very difficult to get even within Japan.
Alcohol degree is 18% which is a little higher than normal sake, but it is really awesome tasting to drink it on-the-rock like a whiskey because 18% sake will be diluted perfectly and keeping a sharp coldness with melted ice. Of course it can be enjoyed as it is with its great aroma, texture, umami and smoothness. Please enjoy this extremely rare opportunity to enjoy a masterpiece of "The God of Sake".
