Sister Cask #664

“NK Mugi 025 Cask Number #663” started selling on September 20, 2022 and sold out in just 6 minutes.
We have received great reviews from customers who have purchased our products and from restaurants that we do business with directly.
This time, the sister cask " NK Mugi 025 #664 " (cask number #664) will be unveiled for the first time at Mitsukoshi Isetan's foreign sales "Ippin-kai" held at Hotel New Otani on February 11th and 12th. Masu.

This #664 is similar in age (25 years) and sister cask color.
*As the name suggests, sister casks are barrels that are aged in an environment where the numbers are next to each other, so they tend to have similar specs and similar tastes.

However, the taste does not change much, but #663 has a thin taste at first, and as time goes on, it develops into a sweet scent like honey, whereas #664 has a strong taste in the mouth. It is characterized by an easy-to-understand sweetness that you can feel from the moment you taste it, and you can even get a glimpse of flavors such as peach.

When aged in barrels, it is called angel's share (another name: angel's share), and the unprocessed sake inside evaporates over the years. The image above says 453 liters, After 25 years of barrel aging, only about 1/3 of the barrel remains, making it extremely valuable as only a few hundred bottles will be bottled.
The previous #663 was very popular, and everyone involved, including representative Hashimoto, rated #664 as having a higher taste, so we have increased the price from last time and are limited to 4 bottles per person. Masu. note that.
Please enjoy the taste that has been created over 25 years as a little luxury every day.

Passion for barrel aging

Since the release of SHOCHU
Although Ebisu Sake Brewery is a shochu manufacturer, it started barrel aging in the 1960s. Aging is, of course, a time-consuming process. In addition to this knowledge, we also have old barrels that have been used for a long time, and in these days when barrels are running out, some of them are quite rare.

Single cask bottling

This NK Mugi 025#663 is aged in third-fill American oak barrels. Spirits also have color restrictions. It seems that the color has not changed considering the age, but even after 25 years, barrel-aged unblended sake that can be commercialized under this limit in a single cask is quite rare, and barrel aging has been carried out for a long time. It can be said that it is a product that can be made.
*Single Cask: Bottled from a single cask without blending the raw spirits from other casks.
*What is a third fill? The barrel used for aging for the first time is called a "first fill," but if you take the unprocessed sake out of that barrel, add a second round of unprocessed sake, and use it again for aging, it becomes a "second fill." A third addition and barrel aging results in a "third fill."

Delicate and bewitching taste

Sweet and rich, you can fully experience the flavor that can only be produced through long-term aging. It has an elegant aroma with honey-like sweetness and a hint of melon fruit. This is a bottle that has concentrated sex appeal due to aging.


What is JAPANESE DARK SPIRITS SERIES?

JAPANESE DARK SPIRITS SERIES was started in order to further expand the possibilities of shochu. Our representative, Hashimoto, carefully selects or blends unblended sake from carefully selected sake breweries across Kyushu and spreads it as a Japanese distilled liquor, as well as commercializing only unblended spirits that are comparable to the world's brown spirits. We will be selling them regularly, so please look forward to their release.
