For over 20 years now, Akishika have rejected the use of herbicides, pesticides and agricultural chemicals. Oku-san makes his own natural fermented fertiliser using byproducts of farming and brewing - rice husks, straw and bran, as well as sake lees. This natural byproduct has yet another life the following year in rice cultivation. A nigori (cloudy) pure rice sake which is unfiltered, unpasteurised and undiluted. Mizore Moyo is unique in that ⅓ of the moromi (mash) is reserved and mixed back into the pressed liquid. Dry, fresh and fruity with green melon, pear, fennel and a refreshing natural acidity. Unfiltered, unpasteurised, undiluted. Serve chilled.
