Niigata Sake Selections Tasting
"Niigata Sake Season!"
Niigata Sake Selections is the importer of a group of fantastic sake from the "Snow Country" of Niigata prefecture. Years ago, some of their brews were among of our most popular, best-selling sake. Unfortunately, there were some distribution difficulties and they became unavailable for a while, but we are thrilled to announce that they are back!
Kiminoi Kurahiden Please join us this Friday, Feb. 21, from 5 pm, when we will be joined by Mr. Yuji Murai (of Orcas Distributing) for a special "re-introduction" of these tasty brews. Be sure to keep an eye out for Kiminoi Kurahiden "Brewery's Secret" Junmai Ginjo ($45/720 ml). Why? It's one of Johnnie's all-time favorites, brewed in the umami-laden (a hint of caramel) yamahai style, and a great example of how a sake can be dry and rich at the same time.
