Overview of the Sake
Established in 1767 and despite its long history and tradition of sake brewing, the brewery takes a very innovative approach to crafting sake by addressing the needs of modern customers – sake that go well with various contemporary cuisine. IMA, Black and Hito Toki are some of the most innovative sake that complement various culinary delights. Imayo Tsukasa has gained recognition not only in Japan but also Europe as an ‘out of the box’ innovator attracting new sake drinkers with their inspiring sake and packaging.

Award winning ceramic packaging is a tribute to the ornamental carp (KOI) that was developed in Niigata. Urban legend says that in the old days unscrupulous brewers would dilute sake so much that a gold fish could swim in it. “Not us”, says Imayo Tsukasa, whose flagship sake is the barrel select cask strength Junmai Daiginjo. Able to climb powerful waterfalls, carp are a symbol of strength and resilience.

Rice/Ingredients:
Rice Polish Yeast

Origin
(新潟県) 
Niigata Prefecture, Japan

Tasting Notes
Purity and strength come together in this collectible porcelain bottle.

A reputation that is more to be done for this sake nicknamed Nishikigoï, the other name of the noble Japanese koi carp. Do not look for the type of rice used, the degree of polishing, or any other usual indication. We must play the card of confidence and discovery for this wine reserved for a few insiders.
