Kikusui Shuzo Funaguchi Nama Genshu Hanjozo 200 ml ($6.99) / 1 L($28.99): Funaguchi is an un-pasteurized and un-diluted type of Sake and as such it is surprisingly delicate. Funaguchi has a rich, full-bodied flavor but with a refreshing clean finish. Because this Sake is un-pasteurized this fresh fruity flavor matures day-by-day in the can. In six months it transforms into a rich brandy-like flavor. After one year it comes to resemble a Chinese rice wine. Also being un-diluted instead of the usual 15% alcohol Funaguchi has 19% alcohol opening it up to the possibility of interesting cocktails. Experience the difference of un-pasteurized, un-diluted Sake.
