Patience is a virtue

Crafted by a small brewery in a little town called Kinomoto, Shichi Hon Yari Shizuku is made with a local rice called Tamazakae. The rice is polished way down and then fermented even slower than normal and collected drop by drop after fermentation. The result is a smokey, dry sake that is the perfect match for a steak dinner or some stuffed pork chops. Because the brewers don’t press the sake, only a small amount of sake is gleaned from each batch, making availability limited.
