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. Due to his truly high popularity, Noguchi's sake will be out of stock very quickly within a couple of weeks after being brewed 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.
Hiya-Oroshi (ひやおろし) was named after i) Hiya (冷や) which means only first Hiire (火入れ）pasteurization when it is stored and no second Hiire before shipment and ii) Oroshi (卸) which means distribution, especially in the fall when outside temperature becomes equivalent to the brewery warehouse.
Please enjoy this extremely rare opportunity to enjoy a masterpiece of "The God of Sake".
