This is an unpasteurized (nama) and undiluted (genshu) sake. When sake is left unpasteurized it needs to be kept cold or be completely sealed from contact with air, hence the choice to can this product instead of a more common glass cup. A portable container in a perfect single serving size, or as the Japanese call it, a gō. This is fortified with Shochu, the traditional distilled beverage of Japan, adding to the aromatics and dept of the sake. Kikusui is certified organic in Japan, but U.S. regulators would let them market it as such in America, but we know what's up.
From the mouth of the importer (Mutual Trading Co):
"Style meets Depth in this special take on the famous Funaguchi. Instead of fortifying Kunko with the usual jozo (distiller's alcohol), sake-kasu Shochu is used, adding a whole new world to the aromatics and flavors of Funaguchi. Lush and luxurious mouthfeel, with a finish that leaves you smiling."
