"Fresh and vibrant, with savoury flavour notes."
Fresh and vibrant, with flavour amplitude rare in a young, unpasteurised sake. Savoury notes add to the taste enjoyment. Made with a strain of the No. 7 yeast discovered at Masumi’s brewery 70 years ago.
It is all in the name. "First Run", or "Arabashiri" in Japanese, is the first sake of the brewing year and a privilege limited to a few. In Japan, most breweries produce their sake during the Winter months, starting on October 01st (World Sake Day) and finishing in Spring. This "First Run" by Masumi is, therefore, the brewery very first pressed and bottled batch.
