It can truly be said that DASSAI Beyond was more than a decade-in-the-making. The origins of this rare and extraordinary sake began with a simple, yet most challenging ambition: to handcraft a sake that would surpass the excellence of DASSAI 23, widely praised by critics as a "perfect" sake. And so, driven by the passion of DASSAI's founder, Hiroshi Sakurai, he and his small group of the finest sake artisans began their quest to improve upon perfection at DASSAI's tiny, countryside brewery in Yamaguchi prefecture.
The standards for DASSAI Beyond were so high, that years of dedicated work and painstaking craftsmanship did not produce a single bottle that could meet them. Batch after batch—each one superb and "perfect" in its own way—was rejected for not sufficiently transcending the excellence of DASSAI 23. But Sakurai and his artisans would not give up their quest and, finally, they succeeded in creating a sake worthy of the name DASSAI Beyond.
To this day, the superlative standards for DASSAI Beyond keep production extremely limited and each bottle is a rarity. The completely handcrafted process for producing it remains a closely held secret. And the work of our sake artisans is never truly finished, as they continue a quest to take DASSAI Beyond even further past the limits of perfection.
