Koshu sakes

Koshu sakes are aged in casks or vats for at least 3 years.
Although it is often assumed that sake is best drunk fresh, Koshu is far from just a curiosity, and a few breweries are making a real specialty of that technique. We have here high quality products, smooth sakes, with complex notes of ripe fruit, cooked fruits, with notes of fino or rancio wine. 

Choose a Koshu sake if you like full-bodied sakes, complex notes of ripe fruit, cooked and jammy fruits, Fino or Rancio notes. These are quite unconventional and rare sakes.
