Miwatari Junmaishu sake - Komodaru
Réference : NISTOSHK
Komodaru or sakadaru is a barrel that has been used to store sake for over three hundred and fifty years. In its traditional and luxurious version, it is made of cedar wood. This type of cask has no pouring system or tap, so it must be filled and then sealed with a removable lid or opened by breaking the lid. This gives rise to a Shinto ceremony: kagami biraki. Komodaru is covered with a mat and a rope made of rice straw to protect it from the weather.
