Why golden carp sake?
In the days when sake was shipped in barrels, rice was a valuable item and liquor made from rice was also a valuable item. The sake breweries that wanted to make even a little bit of money were said to dilute liquor and distribute them to liquor stores, and liquor stores further diluted liquor with water and sold to customers. It was filled with a bottle of liquor that had been diluted so that the goldfish could swim, and people called it “goldfish liquor.”
However, even in such times, it is said that the story of being very pleased from the liquor store has been carried out, since the liquor was distributed without thinning in “Imayotsukasa shuzo (brewing)” to make Nishikigoi (golden carp). The Japanese sake “Nishikigoi” was developed from the idea of producing a magnificent style of liquor that embodies the way of Imayotsukasa brewing.
You can get them by online. However they won’t ship to worldwide.
If you come to Japan in the near future, why don’t you purchase it.
