The brand name Houraisen is referring to Utopia. So ‘Arcadia’ is Houraisen’s new concept to create super special Sake and work with artists from around the world.
2019 is its first release. The artist of this Sake is Haruka Asano.
This Sake is ‘Kijoshu’, it is a part of the Sake category in Japan and is very sweet, like a dessert wine.
The colour is shiny gold, and on the nose, there are aromas such as pear and apple, and the palate has a creamy texture, with an elegant clean finish.
All rice used for this Sake is grown by Houraisen without any chemicals used.
Many elements contribute to this beautiful Sake – very polished rice gives its beautiful elegance, the Kimoto method of fermentation creates complexity in flavour, the use of Junmai Daiginjo Sake as a part of the water used during the Sake fermentation adds clean sweetness, and then the maturation giving more texture. Only 150 bottles were made.
Ingredients: Water, Rice, Koji Rice, Sake Yeast.
