Taiko no Izanai 2011
The one-and-only true 'seawater sake'. Whereas almost all of the seawater sake is made on the island of Shikoku, to be sold to tourists, these are so filtered and diluted that you can hardly tell the sea was involved. The seawater used for Taiko no Izanai was unfiltered and almost undiluted, thus you could not drink it for the first three years. Now after 9 years of age it has acquired a harmonious balance between subdued salty taste, maturation and minimally polished organic rice. Completely unique (made only once) heavy-taste sake. Slow-brew yamahai, natural yeast, slowly pressed, unpasteurised, unfiltered and undiluted.
