A lightly sparkling version of the Daigo no Shizuku! A medieval bodaimoto-type sake made on the basis of a temple recipe from the early 15th century. Since it dates back to before the 17th century sake revolution, it had better be termed ‘fermented rice drink’ than sake. The starter is made overnight instead of in one month, all ingredients are added in one go instead of three stages, and the fermentation only lasts ten days instead of a full month. Terada Honke is the only brewery making this bodaimoto brew under completely medieval conditions. Organic rice, minimal polishing, natural yeast, self-cultivated kōji, unpasteurised, unfiltered, undiluted. This rough and radical brewing method results in a refreshing full-body drink with very strong sweetness and acidity, combining into a citrus-like taste. For this sparkling version amazake (sweet non-alcohol sake) has been added to make for a second fermentation on the bottle. The Terada Honke brewery was founded around 1675 and they have returned to early modern and medieval brewing methods. Easiest the most radical brewery of Japan, modern machinery has been done away with and natural, organic and handwork are the new keywords. Accordingly Terada Honke is one of the very few breweries that does not use any cultivated yeast or kōji, relying solely on the natural yeast culture of their brewery and hand-picked kōji. Most of the production is fermented in the slow-brew kimoto method where no lactic acid is added to the starter (moto). The rice used is organic.
