“Shizuku” means “drops,” because the sake is not pressed, but rather allowed to drip out of cloth bags filled with the finished brew. Shizuku daiginjos are light and ethereal. This is a junmai daiginjo but maintains the Shichi Hon Yari style which is earthy and rustic. The pressed version of this sake was in the top group of Robert Parker’s recent tasting of 800 sakes.
