Toji Izumi-san uses yeast FK-3 which only 5 brewers in Japan work with, resulting in a spicy savory flavor with layers of milk and orchard fruit. The fact that he does no tank blending, no dilution, no added alcohol, no lactic acid, and no charcoal fining results in an unadulterated sake that is still remarkable in its finesse. Contemplative and delicious.
Mana is brewed in Fukui Prefecture in the Hokuriku region.
