Foo Fighters x Tatenokawa Sake Gift Set
Midnight Silver Junmai Daiginjo Sake
To commemorate the release of ‘Medicine At Midnight’, Japanese sake brand “TATENOKAWA” that produces top quality Junmai Daiginjo sake has collaborated with Foo Fighters.
For those new to the world of sake, or wanting to know more about the collaboration, Tatenokawa, the brand producing the limited-edition tipple, has been making sake at their brewery in Yamagata Prefecture for 180 years.
The Foo Fighters, who say they love sake, remotely tested a number of different offerings from the brewery, and the sake they chose as their favorite was used to create two new varieties to mark the release of the band’s upcoming album.
This is the second limited-edition variety is the Foo Fighters × Tatenokawa Junmai Daiginjo Hansho Gin, with “Hansho Gin” translating to “Midnight Silver.”
This sake is based on the “rock side” of the Foos and is made with 50-percent polished Omachi rice sourced from Okayama Prefecture. According to Tatenokawa, this version displays an excellent depth and sharp aftertaste with a firm body to provide you with “vitality for tomorrow”.
Midnight Blue Junmai Daiginjo Sake
Foo Fighters x Tatenokawa Hansho Ao Midnight Blue Junmai Daiginjo Sake. To commemorate the release of ‘Medicine At Midnight’, Japanese sake brand “TATENOKAWA” that produces top quality Junmai Daiginjo sake has collaborated with the Foo Fighters. Please enjoy ‘HANSHO (Midnight Blue)’ while listening to their fantastic new album. Brewed with the “pop side” of Foo Fighters in mind, Hansho Ao uses 100-percent locally sourced Dewa rice from Yamagata Prefecture, polished to 50 percent. Said to display a gorgeous aroma with a gentle mouthfeel and light sweetness, Tatenokawa describes this sake as a combination that will “heal your daily fatigue and permeate your entire body,” which sounds like the same effects you’d get after listening to the band’s music.
