Places to enjoy the tasty and unusual hiyaoroshi young sake of Aichi

Hiyaoroshi refers to "nihonshu" sake that is shipped out "cold" (hiya), meaning it was stored in barrels in early spring and aged over the summer, so it does not require the pasteurization step - known for taking away part of the flavor. This sake appears on the market ready to be enjoyed when autumn approaches. Aichi is actually a treasure trove of local sake, with over 40 breweries of Japanese sake, so the available labels are plenty and with a rich variety of fragrances, aromas and flavors. Enhance your gastronomical autumn experiencewith the unique hiyaoroshi from Aichi!
