Company email (October 2012):
"Most sake does not use gelatin finings, although we cannot determine what does and what does not, and there is no way to know from the label. Powdered active charcoal is used for fining of most Japanese sake . This is made from (as far as we know) wood and plants, but we cannot be sure about all stuff at all places. Sake called "muroka" is unfiltered and unfined so that would be a safe bet.
We follow the traditional Japanese sake making technology whereby we do not use animal ingredients or products in our production of sake. As to the use of charcoal filter as referred to in the above website while we are not 100% sure as to and how the charcoal is manufactured but we understand that it is of wood/plant origin.
Our Go-Shu sakes are only manufactured in Penrith, NSW."
