We are still tasting new sake (shinshu) and it is only a question to try as many as possible!
Sanwa Brewery (Shimizu Ku) did not disappoint and came up with one in a jiffy!

“Fukuro Tsuri Kashu” means that it is original sake collected as it oozes out of the “draining bag”

Rice: Gohyakumangoku (Toyama) 100%
Rice milled down to 55%
Alcohol: 16=17 degrees (genshu)
