Did you know that you could age sake? Yup! It's called Koshu or Juku- Seishu if it has been aged for two or more years. Age it over 5 years and that's called Hizo-shu. And for the royal treatment of sake aged for 10 or more years you can call that Dai-Koshu. Bottom-line is that certain brews are constructed to mature and the results are outstanding.
