It introduced unpasteurised sake to Europe and, as ever, the major part of the collection consists of unpasteurised raw sake, in most cases also unfiltered, undiluted and/or made from organically grown rice. This collection also includes many medieval and early modern brews and long-matured sake. Its independent selectors have a strong preference for pure sake with outspoken taste and aroma, that can contribute to dishes from all cuisines in the world, but are also marvelous to enjoy on their own.
