Description: 

Call it divine intervention.
Global warming made it impossible to continue making the original Divine Droplets in the Takasago igloo in Hokkaido. We searched for the best drip-pressed sake in Japan and all roads led to Toko. Toko’s sake exemplifies the same spirit and similar taste profile as our beloved Divine Droplets. And it may even be more impressive than the original. To pay homage, we decided to keep the beloved name with a new, modern twist in packaging.

This dynamite sake is made not by pressing with a machine rather the brewers separate the sake from the lees by placing it in canvas bags and use gravity to drip the sake out slowly. Thus expect an amazingly silky quality to this brew with a nose full of pear and minerals. Talk about a great first sip. A clean start is filled with persimmon and plum flavors wrapped in a chewy and slightly fruity package. Yet the finish is more clean than fruity and more balanced than dry.
