I’ve never really thought about the process that goes into making sake, but after watching the video below I have a newfound respect for the alcohol.
Being in black and white, the video makes you feel like you are watching a very delicate process that really highlights the art form, so-to-speak.
Instead of setting up my own microbrewery in the future, I might just tackle turning rice into sake like these folks.
Looks like a good time and a satisfying one once the job is complete.
Sawaya Matsumoto, the makers of the sake, and Kurando Furuya of teamLab, write:
We hope to share the creativity, sensibility and the aesthetics of Kyoto with the world as we express tradition and innovativeness through our sake. To achieve this goal, we treasure the spirit of “SHUHARI.” Preserve tradition while applying new ideas for innovative sake brewing techniques to create a new value… This spirit becomes the foundation for our sake brewing.
