HONG KONG.- This autumn, Sotheby’s Wine will present a collection of Japanese sake for the very first time.

Newly launched today and sourced directly from the brewery, six bottles of Dassai Sake from the limited Beyond the Beyond collection (est. HK$32,000-50,000 / US$4,000-6,000 per bottle) will be offered in the online auction, Vine | The Scholarly Cellar of Dr. Gordon Ku Part II + Dassai Beyond the Beyond , open for bidding from 30 October to 10 November 2020. Made from the award-winning Yamada Nishiki sake rice harvested in 2019, only 23 bottles are available worldwide. The six bottles offered in the Sotheby’s auction are numbered 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 8 out of 23. Each bottle includes a wooden case, which will be personalised with the buyer’s name in calligraphy.

A renowned Japanese sake brand, Dassai is located deep in the mountains of the Yamaguchi prefecture, perfectly positioned for its natural supplies of pristine quality water. Dassai distinguishes itself from other sake manufacturers by producing only premium Junmai Daiginjo sake - the highest grade of sake - made from top-grade Yamada Nishiki rice milled to 50% of its original size. It was also the first sake brewery to employ a centrifuge rather than a conventional press, resulting in a much smoother and cleaner taste.

Adam Bilbey, Head of Sotheby’s Wine, Asia, states: “We are excited to debut sake at Sotheby’s auction with Dassai, one of the most revered names in the world of Japanese sake. The impeccable provenance of these bottles, and the superior quality liquid within, are exemplary of Sotheby’s Wine’s ever-expanding portfolio.”

The sale also features The Scholarly Cellar of Dr Gordon Ku Part II, which presents a spectacular selection of wines amassed over fifty years from private Singapore cellar, showcasing a comprehensive tastes in wines, and covering major wine producing regions stretching from the Gironde in Bordeaux to the hillsides of Napa and the Tuscan landscape.

Also not to be missed is a vertical collection of Penfolds Grange from 1979 to 2003 in the rare format of magnum format. Arguably Australia’s most iconic wine producer, Penfolds features a broad portfolio. Grange, their flagship wine, was officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia.
