ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
Asahi Shuzo doesn't want drinkers to perceive Beyond as something "more perfect" than Dassai 23, but instead, as a totally different entity. In fact, they suggest drinking it after having a glass of Dassai 23 to really appreciate what makes Beyond different. Comparatively speaking, Beyond is a little more complex, a little more mineral, slightly less creamy and less sweet on the palate. It achieves in bringing body and elegance in a bottle. It has gentle pear, citrus, rhubarb, and wild rose notes, all braided up in silky, elegant layers. As Miles Davis said, writing about music is like dancing about architecture— we can talk all night about Dassai Beyond, but in the end, you'll just have to try it.

HOW TO ENJOY
Too special to be had with food...but if you must, oysters, crab, scallops, wild vegetables.
Best served chilled and in white wine glasses to bring out the aroma and taste.

Through crises and difficulties, Asahi Shuzo has carefully innovated their own unique way to brew sake. Over the past few years they adapted their work to produce sake year-round (instead of just during sake season), something all but unheard-of in the industry. By producing sake steadily, they have succeeded in minimizing variables, allowing them to focus on the minutiae of the craft. These details include labor-intensive hand-craft methods that have been proven over centuries to yield better sake, but also the most modern technology applied in the right measure, in the right places.
