Introduction from Dassai:
In order to make “Dassai that is beyond the finest”, we wished to ask farmers to produce “Yamada-Nishiki sake rice that is beyond the finest”. It was with this objective that in 2019, we initiated a contest entitled “Beyond the Best Yamada-Nishiki Project”, to which we invited the participation of farmers who grow Yamada-Nishiki rice. Using the winning sake rice, we went to work to “go beyond our finest Dassai”.
To craft this sake, we adopt the brewing method for Dassai Beyond but take it even further. For this batch, we decided to only make 23 bottles available to the world. Within these 23 bottles, 6 of them will be part of this auction.
Additional Terms and Condition:
This bottle of sake was shipped directly from Dassai and is now resting in Sotheby’s Hong Kong storage at Crown Wine Cellars. The personalized wooden case will be shipped after the auction for Dassai to calligraph the winning bidder’s name on it. The winning bidder will be notified when the wooden case arrives with Sotheby’s HK at the end of November. By bidding on this lot you agree to authorize Sotheby’s to provide your name to Dassai if you win the lot eventually.
