Tatenokawa x Foo Fighters 'Midnight Blue' Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml
Foo Fighters × 楯野川 純米大吟醸 半宵 碧
To commemorate the release of ‘Medicine At Midnight’, Japanese sake brand “TATENOKAWA” that produces top quality Junmai Daiginjo sake has collaborated with Foo Fighters.
For those new to the world of sake, or wanting to know more about the collaboration, Tatenokawa, the brand producing the limited-edition tipple, has been making sake at their brewery in Yamagata Prefecture for 180 years.
The Foo Fighters, who say they love sake, remotely tested a number of different offerings from the brewery, and the sake they chose as their favorite was used to create two new varieties to mark the release of the band’s upcoming album.
The first Foo Fighters sake is called Foo Fighters x Tatenokawa Junmai Daiginjo Hansho Ao, with”Hansho Ao” translating to “Midnight Blue.”
Brewed with the “pop side” of Foo Fighters in mind, Hansho Ao uses 100-percent locally sourced Dewasansan rice from Yamagata Prefecture, polished to 50 percent. Said to display a gorgeous aroma with a gentle mouthfeel and light sweetness, Tatenokawa describes this sake as a combination that will “heal your daily fatigue and permeate your entire body,” which sounds like the same effects you’d get after listening to the band’s music.
Rice Polishing Ratio: 50
Rice: Dewasansan (from Yamagata)
|Sake Type||Junmai Daiginjo|
