Editor-in-Chief Ishii's ``A Splendid Life of Extraneous Thoughts''

I want to do that, I want to do this. I want to enjoy life even more! Based on such greedy thoughts, we will deliver the daily life of Editor-in-Chief Ishii, who enjoys life full of distractions. This time's theme is sake. This is the story of ``IWA 5'', created by Richard Geoffroy, the fifth generation chief brewer of Dom Pérignon.

Hello. This is Ishii, the editor-in-chief. The world of sake has been hot lately. I feel that this momentum is becoming a major swell due to the rise of a new generation and new attempts by long-established stores. Among these, IWA 5 is a sake that stands out from the crowd. This sake is produced by Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon's fifth-generation chief brewer, after he retired from that position, and its biggest feature is that it is an assemblage of multiple types of sake based on his taste and sense. . This time, I received the third generation, "IWA 5 Assemblage 3."

I received the previous Assemblage 1 and 2, but this 3 gave me the impression that it had a more solid structure. It still has a gorgeous aroma and a rich, deep flavor, but it's overflowing with power that even envelops the French sauce. This time, I had the pairing at Hiroo's up-and-coming French restaurant ``Algorithm'', and I was blown away by the richness and sweetness of the classic French Americana sauce made with stir-fried shrimp shells, and the texture of the plump shrimp and blini. , when I poured in IWA...I ascended to heaven. I just want to soak in the afterglow and go to sleep (whatever this is).

A little more about "IWA 5". The modern, minimalist bottle design was created by world-renowned industrial designer Marc Newson. The sake brewery in Shiraiwa, Tateyama Town, Toyama Prefecture, is in charge of the world-renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. It's only natural that you'll want to try sake made by an incredible group of stars, including Mr. Richard, right? I want to share this excitement with everyone...
