1,000ml Special Sake from Miyazaki!

This is exactly how it came in the mail this morning, in bubble wrap.
1000ml of a rare “doburoku” type sake from Miyazaki prefecture. As you can see it looks half full, which is by design, not a mistake. A standard bottle this size is usually 1800ml or 1.8L(isshoubin) in size and is about 90% full of sake.
This sake is called "Chiyo-no-Kame Moonshine Doburoku - Oyaji's Moonshine! Or, homebrew type sake.
Sent to me chilled. It is an active Junmai Daiginjo cloudy pure Sake where natural yeast from Shiiba Village of Miyazaki Prefecture has been carefully fermented at low temperatures. Right in the middle of the brewing process.
A pure sake where the Sake mash that is fermenting has been scooped with a ladle. It makes you feel that you are truly drinking “Doburoku".”
The lively acidic flavor from the fermentation really compliments its creamy sweetness.
Recommended for ladies.
1 liter has been poured in a 1.8-liter bottle so the yeast does not make it overfill, and Sugi leaves are used as the cork for degassing.
It can also be enjoyed frozen. Do not topple over: KEEP REFRIGERATED Best drunk at: 0 to 10 degrees ◎The cork has a hole in it because there is no worry about spilling with Sugi leaves.

The first video showcases the bottle and the second pictures showcases the glass I use.
In the end, this is a delightfully delicious “doburoku” sake, which in actuality comes from Ehime prefecture. Only the yeast is from Miyazaki prefecture.
There is also a pink version of the same sake.
