Imayo Tsukasa Hito To Ki To Hitotoki Junmai

$56

“Hito To Ki” translates to “people and tree” as well as Hito Toki “a moment in time,” – Japanese love play on words. Brewed in cedar tanks, this Junmai is reminiscent of barrel-aged chardonnay without acidity and bitterness. Packed with umami, its rich mouthfeel satisfies. Brewing staff apprenticed at the cooperage to learn the the art of building cedar tanks. They hope to revive and support the the lone cooperage remaining in Japan that can build such large cedar tanks. Crowd-sourced funding helped spread the word about this precious tradition and the cooper's skill. Coopers historically made tanks for many fermented beverages and food.
