The "Shiko" set is a selection of five bottles aged for over 20 years. Please enjoy the miracle of breweries from different regions that have come together in this unique set. (1983 Iwanoi / Iwase brewery) 14% alcohol by volume. A unique release with a flavor remniscent of white wine and brilliant sweetness. (1999 Narimasa / Narimasa brewery) 15% alcohol by volume. The sweet spreading aroma of honey and black tea creates a richness cut by strong acid for a refreshingly dry taste. (1999 Fukumitsuya / Fukumitsuya brewery) 15% alcohol by volume. A balance of sweetness and acid like apricot jam enhances mellow notes of caramel and a spicy finish. (1995 Aoitsuru / Inami brewery) 17% alcohol by volume. Room temperature aging has led to a mellow sweetness with the fragrance of honey and almonds, pulled together with moderate acidity and spiciness. (1993 Umenishiki / Umenishikiyamakawa Brewery) 18% alcohol by volume. The 20 year aging process has expressed the aroma of fragrant nuts and well-ripened peaches to create a dry liquor with a sherry-like flavor.

Shiko Collection 39-year Vintage Set (500 Set Limited Edition) is produced in Chiba prefecture.
Iwase brewery
Chiba Prefecture
About 10 minutes from the brewery is the Onjuku Coast, named "Moon Desert".
Because of its proximity to the coast, the brewery's brewing water passes through the seashell layer of groundwater, and has a hardness of 13-15, which is among the hardest in Japan.
High calcium and magnesium content means high nutrient content and vigorous fermentation. By using water with high hardness and brewing using the "Yamahai yeast" method, we are able to produce sake that is rich in flavor and has a strong acidity.
In order to bring out the flavor of the rice, which is a characteristic of Iwanoi's sake quality, we insist on ""Yamahai brewing"" and brew more than two thirds of the total brewing volume with Yamahai.
With the exception of the Daiginjo, most of the rice used is grown in Chiba Prefecture.
