IWA is a new sake from Japan created by former Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy. Born of a profound respect for tradition paired with the constant need to experiment, IWA is contributing to a new craft of sake.

 

IWA’s singularity lies in its perfect balance and spaciousness, a unique character primarily achieved through the unprecedented use of blending. A constellation of passionate and creative minds brought IWA to life. The brewery is being built by Kengo Kuma in Western Japan.

 

The bottle and glassware were designed by Marc Newson. The logo and visual identity were created by Hideki Nakajima in collaboration with calligrapher Mariko Kinoshita.

 

IWA 5 is composed from a blend of three different rice varieties – Yamada Nishiki, Omachi, Gohyakumanoku – and five different yeast strains. The result is a sake with notes of plum, almond, butter and orange.
