This sake was developed by the suggestion of Dr. Ochiai, a cancer doctor in the field of extracellular vesicle science. So what did someone in health want from sake? There is a saying in Japan: "Sake is better than any medicine," most likely due to the benefits of the fermentation in sake. With technical advances, modern sake, although probably more delicious, has drifted far from what sake used to be.
Dassai owner Sakurai had no intention of compromising the taste of Dassai, but wanted to bring back more of those health benefits sake used to have, and started looking into the old methods of brewing sake. What we get is Dassai 23 Dex Shinsei. We don't want to get too technical and confuse you (who are we kidding, a lot of these biology and medical words are just really, really hard!) but simply put, exosomes, which are believed to stimulate immune cells, are found in Shinsei 23. Sake lovers don't need an excuse to drink sake, but knowing this certainly doesn't hurt!
