There is a genre of sake called "long-term aged sake". Perhaps no one has ever drank in this area, which is less familiar than wine or whiskey. Long-term aged sake with an aging period of 50 years Exists. This was released by Fukumitsuya in Kanazawa. Limited production and sale of 100 pieces "Momotose 1970" Will be one that opens up a new culture of sake.
Long-term aged sake that enhances the value of sake
Taichiro Fukumitsu, Managing Director of Fukumitsuya Co., Ltd., says, "Increasing the value of sake is an issue." Among alcoholic beverages, Japanese sake brewing is It is said to be particularly difficult because there are many factors that affect the taste in the manufacturing process. The raw materials for sake are relatively diverse, such as rice, water, jiuqu, and sake mother, but if the raw materials are the same, the taste will not necessarily be the same, and the function of the microorganisms called brewing will be the point, so Mr. Mori and the brewers involved. The environment of the brewery also directly affects the taste.
Mr. Fukumitsu feels that it is hard to say that the value of sake, which takes time and effort to make, is recognized in the market compared to other sake such as wine and whiskey. Then, "Hundreds of climbs 1970 "" Has a challenging price setting that has never been seen before in sake. of course, Rarity and taste comparable to wines and whiskeys in the same price range , And Mr. Fukumitsu are confident.
History and manufacturing method of long-term aged sake
In 1959, I was skeptical that sake at that time did not have the concept of "aging". 12 Fukumitsuya started research on long-term aged sake by the head of the family. Visiting European wine regions "Aging" supports sake culture Because I realized that 1969 Strategically developed a number of brewing methods and aging methods, starting with the release of "Three Years Aged Fukumasa Mune Old" in the year. Until now, many types of long-term aged sake and techniques have been treasures of Fukumitsuya.
Fukumitsuya long-term aged sake "Momotosei" series
How to ripen sake 2 There are two, one is "light ripening" due to constant temperature in the low temperature zone, and the other is "dense ripening" that is aged by seasonal temperature changes. This time, "Hundreds of Ascension 1970 "Is a rich type. It is slowly aged as the four seasons of Kanazawa change, but the reason why sake can withstand such a long time is because it is made from pure rice, which is prepared only with rice and water.
By the way, "Hundreds of climbs 1970 The degree of rice polishing 70 %, Because it will not mature if it is further polished. Sake made in 1970 is finally bottled after three generations of Heisei and Reiwa. Isn't that a romantic story?
Challenge of long-established store Fukumitsuya
The amber-colored "Hundreds of Ascension" poured into the glass 1970 If you put a little "" in your mouth, it will fill your mouth with a savory aroma that is different from any alcohol you have ever drank. I had imagined a slightly more "deep" taste, but that wasn't the case. 50 It's so fresh that you can't think of it as a sake brewed a year ago.
If this is the case, it will be a great success as a sake during meals, and Mr. Fukumitsu told me that it goes well with sushi. Of course, it is also recommended to enjoy the aroma quietly after meals and taste it little by little, so you can spend the most abundant time.
Brandy glass is suitable for enjoying the rising scent
If you don't sell sake, you can't make money, and you have to pay for the sake rice you buy. And long-term aging also involves quality uncertainties.
