By pasteurizing sake, enzymes and yeasts are deactivated, thus improving the preservation of the sake.


This technique has been known among toji (master brewers) since the end of the Muromachi period (1336-1573) when it was known as nizake. It was then further refined and developed into a technique known as hi-ate, which has made sake one of the world's rarest preservative-free alcoholic beverages.


Furthermore, at Asahi Shuzo we are not afraid of the high cost of heat pasteurization: after filling the bottles at a low temperature (below 5°C), we use a hot water shower method to heat pasteurize our sake and then immediately cool it down to minimize the damage caused by the heat to the sake.


However, even with the most careful heat sterilization, it is still inevitable that the heat would alter the quality of the sake, but by adding micro-bubbled* carbon dioxide to the sake, it is now possible to achieve the same results in less than 15 seconds at 65°C.


The name of the sake, "Dassai Hayata 23", is a tribute to the work of the late Dr. Hayata for his great contribution and achievement that led to the existance of this masterpiece.
