“ZAKIMI Typhoon” is made from aged old sake that has been sleeping for 30 years on Ishigaki Island, where countless typhoons pass through. A typhoon is a providence of nature that mixes water and air and passes through. By continuing to sleep surrounded by such tropical nature, the supreme awamori with a mellow flavor is produced. In addition, “Typhoon” uses purified “typhoon rainwater” that arrived on Ishigaki Island that year as the finishing water. It’s exactly the old sake of the old sake that slept in the typhoon and woke up in the typhoon. A story of old sake completed by 30 years and a typhoon that arrived that year. Designer Kenya Hara was inspired by the climate of Ishigaki Island, and it was realized through repeated discussions with President Yaezumi and Moriyuki Zakimi. On the label of the sake, a calligraphy with the theme of “typhoon scene” is arranged to express the force of nature of the Yaeyama Islands. In addition, the year and typhoon number are written on handmade Japanese paper to seal the bottle, and the vintage of the typhoon is engraved. The sake taste is beautiful and clear. The scent of juicy fruit and the sweetness of slow-cooked rice. It conveys a rich sweetness with a mellow texture, and the final result is a sake that makes you feel sharp.
