Our Yurina-san taming the Crazy Horse

Weeks ago our master brewer started calling this batch “ja-ja uma”, or Crazy Horse, for its uncontrollable character.  Those who have been following us batch by batch may have noticed that #10 is actually being pressed prior to Batch #9 – Crazy Horse has been that sort of batch! 

Despite its wild nature, the batch tastes suberb – while keeping with Izumi’s general pattern of fresh acidity balanced by fruity sugar, this one has a specially deep and lingering flavour. 

For this batch we have for the first time put out the elegent “Nakadori”, or middle-pressed sake, into the tasting bar offering together with some super-smooth “Fukuro-tsuri” bag-dripped sake.  After tasting these special by-the-glass offerings we believe you will agree that this Crazy Horse actually got tamed in the end!

Pressing sake today thru Sunday. Shiboritate at bar, Black Sesame ice cream too!

We are pressing Batch #8 today, which we expect will be a nice balance of fruit, acidity and sugar.  “Shiboritate” fresh-pressed sake will be available at the tasting bar all weekend.

This week we have also added black sesame “Korogoma” ice cream to our line-up of popular soya milk frozen desserts.  It may be the most delicious one yet!

Hope to see you at the Distillery.
