A new flavor created in collaboration with The MET. A sensory interpretation of the famed wood block depicting the Life of Nichiren & his journey on the salty sea into exile on the Island of Sudo. Inspired by this vivid depiction of the bold, wild and salty Japanese sea. We used classically bold concord grapes and traditional Japanese Sea Salt for a charismatic twist on an iconic jam.
