Hakutsuru spent nearly 10 years breeding and refining the phenotype for its first proprietary rice varietal "Hakutsuru Nishiki". From that special rice, this sake represents from start-to-finish a watershed sake achievement. The texture is incredibly nuanced, with layers of like the finest powdered rice and Michelin-starred mochi. There's a titanium-strong knife-edge of a dry, bitter backbone that supports deep and rich tropical fruit flavors on top.
The Hakutsuru Nishiki rice used for this small batch of Ultra-high-polish sake is the product of a 10 year long rice farming experiment in cross breeding Watari Bune rice (the parent of esteemed sake rice Yamada Nishiki) with Yamadaho. Following the success of generating a viable and excellent sake rice, Hakutsuru now contracts with a single farmer to have it grown specifically to their specifications. (They also grow a small paddy of it on the balcony of their offices in Ginza for demonstration purposes. No word yet on if any of that particular grow goes into the sake batch.)
