Take a big step back in time, before modernization brought the concept of filtration to saké brewers. Step back to a simple time when saké was fresh, unfiltered and undiluted. Nigori means "Cloudy," or "Unfiltered" which comes from the rice sediment that remains in the saké after it passes through a very coarse mesh and often after some of the fermenting mash is added back. Thicker and unrefined, unlike most saké, Nigori is to saké as Hefeweizen is to beer — thick and creamy.
