‘Kioke’ means wooden and on the label, it says ‘Kioke Jikomi’ or ‘Wood Ferment’. This is a reference to the Sake being fermented in an open-top wood fermenter (made from Japanese cedar). It spends purely the fermentation time in wood then is aged for the remainder of the time in bottle. Consider it a new version of old-school sake, with a gentle nose made up of dry cedar, cinnamon, chestnuts and pepper. Store dark and cool. Drink at all temperatures.
