A rich seasonal sake. A dry sake with a slightly sharp taste and refreshing aromas. Hiyaoroshi is a general term referring to sake that has been pasteurized once in the winter and then allowed to mature over the summer before distribution in the autumn months. Hiyaoroshi’s summer maturing process allows flavorful components to further coalesce and get to know each other, resulting in a bottle with boosted umami, and a balanced, less hard-edged profile.
*Hiya-oroshi sake's are not pasteurized for the second time before bottling. This results in a sake with some live yeasts and koji. Therefore refrigerated storage is adviced and we do not recommend to keep this sake for a long time.
