"Luscious and juicy character with a nectar-like sweetness on the palate, followed by a long bright finale."

On the nose, fruity aromas of apple, pear and strawberry give way to koji rice and honeydew. Plush, with a very wine-like acidity and a long finish, Dassai 39 is chewy, round, and soft, yet bright and lively - the perfect balance in a sake.

"Dassai" literally means "otter festival". It is a word that was used long ago in our region, Yamaguchi Prefecture, as many otters were frolicking in the nearby rivers. Otters would lay out on the shore fishes they caught, almost as if they are showing them off – as one would do during in a festival. A famous haiku poet named Masaoka Shiki took "Dassai" as a pen name because he would often scatter his reading material all over his room in much the same way otters spread out fish. More importantly, Masaoka has revolutionized Japanese literature during the Meiji era. And because we want to convey this notion as well, as part of our philosophy of sake crafting. The theme underlying Dassai sake is "Making sake is making dreams: opening a new era of sake". To us, this means that we shall never be obsessive about traditions or handcrafted techniques, but instead, we want to revolutionize sake crafting, in so doing make a sake like no one has ever tasted.
