Fresh like Sake
Fresh like Sake
Unpasteurized sake, called namazake, captures the essence of spring in a bottle.Few sakes can adequately capture the essence of spring like namazake. The word namazake means, literally, fresh sake. In technical terms it refers to any unpasteurized sake. Most of Japan’s famed sake is pasteurized, sometimes twice to kill off the enzymes and bacteria.
 
In contrast, namazake is kept in its natural state and it retains its sharp, rich and fresh flavors. Since enzymes are still active in the bottle, namazake will age quicker than normal sake, and must be kept in the refrigerator and a good host would only serve it chilled. Consume it within six months from production for the best experience.
