The name of this sake "Hito to Ki to Hitotoki" means "Man, Wood and a Moment".
Sake was traditionally brewed in wooden barrels. Nowadays sake breweries use tanks in stainless steel. The brewer (Imayotsukasa) wanted to make a blink to the past and obtain a truly traditional sake. Do not expect a woody sake but a very delicate balance between umami and nutty crispness.
The label is made of special paper (Pachica) and refers to cedar wood.
