Tamagawa "Man-eating Rock" (Unpasteurised version)

Tamagawa "Man-eating Rock" (Unpasteurised version)

Fresh sake horror

Probably the scariest label in the sake world, Man-Eating-Rock in its regular form is a dry sake, light by hefty Tamagawa standards, with a fruity core which expands within the dryness on the palate. The unpasteurised interpretation is briefly available as a limited edition every year after that year's new sake is pressed.

Consumed unpasteurised as soon as pressed, and made with rice from the same village as the brewery, this has the lightest carbon footprint of any Tamagawa sake. The little extra nama zing in the mix works to bring the fruit to the fore, making for a zesty brew which its fans wait for devotedly every year.
