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.
This is a Winter Edition, named "Fuyu No Nurukan" (冬の温燗) which means a warm sake in the winter. It is a traditional Japanese style to warm sake at around 40℃ to extract more umami from sake. However, you can enjoy it as a cold sake too with a crisp dry taste. When you drink it at cold, it is really awesome tasting to drink it on-the-rock like a whiskey because 20% alcohol sake will be diluted perfectly and keeping a sharp coldness with melted ice.
Please enjoy this extremely rare opportunity to enjoy a masterpiece of "The God of Sake".
