Distiller: Yoigokochi Saké
Kidozumi Shuzo is an exception to the rules.
Founded in 1879, the brewery is located in the Chiba province, Japan. It is the only Japanese sake maker using the yamahai warm method of production. This method normally works at low temperature, without addition of lactic bacteria to the fermented must, but the brewery partners invented a system allowing the fermentation being made at high temperature, giving therefore unique aromatic profile to all Kidoizumi Shizo sake. Besides, the cellar is also pioneer of aged sake koshu production. Several vintages are available, including the one selected for Veliers Anniversary.
