Mujaku World, a special edition of this unique aged Sake. Only 200 bottles were produced.
An assemblage of 6 different vintages of Mujaku (2016/2018/2019/2020/2021/2022) including “2016” which has aged for 8 years since Mujaku was first released.
This special edition bottle was designed by Mai Ohta, a Japanese designer based in Finland. The art express an ancient Japanese event, "Sunny Day", and a vivid "world of dreams".
Artisans print each bottle by hand and customers can enjoy it as a piece of art even after they've finished drinking.
Upon returning your Mujaku World bottle to the brewery by 2032, the bottle will be recycle it by having it transformed at the hands of a glass artist.
Yamaguchi Prefecture glassblowers will transform the bottle into a vase, and the top is up cycled into a glass piece in the shape of a sparrow, which is also the symbol of Mujaku.
Produced by the Horie Brewery, established in the middle of the Edo era in 1764, the Mujaku Sake is made with 100% Isehikari rice, that is grown organically and milled down to a very low polishing ratio of 18%, in order to produce extremely high-quality sake.
The Isehikari rice was farmed in the illustrious Ise Shrine fields during the Heisei era, and is treated as a special rice.
Mujaku is a premium vintage sake, with a 5 -10 years ageing potential, and is produced using the purest underground spring water from the Nishiki River.
Unlike other sake with limited ageing ability, Mujaku will gain complexity from bottle ageing, like a fine wine.
