Introducing this single annual production, limited edition release named after the legendary immortal Phoenix bird. This very special sake made with drip / shizuku filtering, is bottled in a stunning Champagne magnum of 1.5 litres. It is made with Aiyama rice polished to 45% and is a Junmai Daiginjo that is unfined, undiluted and unpasteurised to maintain its vitality and natural essence.
On pouring into a glass the aroma fills the air with tropical pineapple, grape and green melon. The sake has a crystal-like transparent quality with fruit dominant elegance and superb balance of the elements of sweetness, umami, and acidity. Being unpasteurised (or Nama) there is a vitality to White Phoenix and that fresh intensity enhances the impact of this sake. Like the Phoenix it shines with brilliance then just as quickly slips away, into the darkness, elusive once again.
