The letters AFS represent an abbreviation of Adachi, Furukawa & Shoji who were the three families involved in the brewery in post-war Japan. At this time they decided to create the AFS brand to showcase the older more traditional style of Sake - more acidic, tangy and earthy. The technique involves using what is called Ichi-dan Shikomi or one stage fermentation (most Sake is made in three stages). The other important technique used is the Hot-Yamahai method that Kidoizumi developed. The result with AFS is a unique, full-bodied, multi-layered taste with a much higher tart acidity, green apple aroma and a delicate sweetness.
