The Black Can is the latest of the Kikusui cans to arrive in NC. The lightest in body of Kikusui cans, it is also the most complex. Serve cold and be astounded by the different flavors that come through as it warms up and gets air. The alcohol content in the black can is augmented by the addition of Sochu instead of "distilled alcohol spirits," and the difference is profound.
Kikusui created the first unpasturized (nama) Sake can in 1972 and have been the leader of the segment ever since. Canned nama sake is a wonderful thing. The 200ml (one cup) cans allow for easy, light weight transport and they don't need to be constantly refrigerated like glass bottled namas.
