Return of Houraisen Wa Junmai Ginjo
"And we say, Oh Yeah!"
Also arriving this Friday is one of Johnnie's personal favorites/"desert island" sake, Houraisen "Wa" Junmai Ginjo. Unavailable for the past year or so, "Wa" is being offered to us by our distributor at a special "re-introductory" discount, and we wanted to pass those savings along to you.
Houraisen "Wa" ("Harmony") is soft, full, rich, and mildly sweet, Houraisen Wa with a gentle acidity. It's a great example of a sake that shows a lot of fruit (definitely a grape thing going on there), yet it is not unpleasantly or cloyingly sweet. A mellow sake that is meant for slow, relaxed enjoyment (good luck with that!), the "wa" in the name means "harmony," and comes from the proverb, "Harmony produces good sake."
Normally priced at $65/720 ml bottle, we'll be able to offer a limited number of bottles at $55 each
, with a 10% "case" discount for confirmed orders of 6 or more bottles. We plan on having some of this sake available for tasting and purchase by the glass or bottle this weekend, but if you can't make it down to the shop and would like to order a bottle or two, please contact us (phone: 206-467-7253; e-mail: [email protected]
), by Thursday, Feb. 20
, and we'll be glad to set something aside for you.
