True Sake Newsletter March 2006
As the distribution for this email Newsletter keeps growing by leaps and bounds I have been reminded by my email guy (Jim Kelly from dialogworks.com - an excellent source for perfect emailing systems) that you should use the modify link at the bottom of each message to update your email address (should it change, or you want to send these messages to a different address). Also the bigwigs such as AOL, Earthlink, and Hotmail, MSN, Outlook 2003, and Yahoo have a capability for bypassing their spam filters if email@example.com is in your address book. If you add this rag to your address book then I can use words such as "free" and "sexy Dai Ginjos" and they won't get filtered with all those European, um, "enhancement" emails! Thank you!

A Tokubetsu Junmai is a "special" Junmai in the sense that the brewers did something a little special in the process. For example they may have polished the rice more than Junmai levels, which would make it almost a Ginjo, but they call it Tokubetsu Junmai.
