Tasting Notes: A bold and bright yet medium-light bodied brew with a lush fruity nose and long tail. Tatenokawa Shuzo's Masashi Togami and the Grammy Award-winning French rock/pop band Phoenix decided to collaborate out of respect and gratitude to honor the late Mr. Toshiro Kuroda who spent many years working hard to promote sake in Europe. Christian Mazzalai who spearheaded the project stated that “Mr. Kuroda was a great master who taught all the beauties of life which include sake, and is still inspiring us every day. "A portion of sales from the sake will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society to support the progression of medical technology.
