"Ask Beau" July 2007

Posted by admin in 2007, Ask Beau, July, Newsletter

This month's question is one that we fielded regularly at the store and it has to do with the all important "value" shopper. Steven Q from Mountain View, CA asked:

"What is the best dollar for quality value sake in your store."

Beau Timken

Ahhh a very easy question to answer - all of them! (We do have really great pricing I will say that!) But to enter into the "spirit" of you question I will list four sakes - one in each bottle size that I feel are "under priced" for the quality of the sake that comes out. And please note this is just one dude's opinion, and it would probably change next week.

  • 300ml/$8 - Takenotsuyu Yuki Honoka - Single Pasteurized Junmai from Yamagata. (Ironically there is a chance that this brew's price will go up soon.)
  • 500ml/$20 - Meibo Yowano Tsuki - Junmai Ginjo from Aichi Prefecture.
  • 720ml/$23 - Dassai - Junmai Ginjo from Yamaguchi Prefecture.
  • 1.8L//$38 - Tamanohikari Junmai Ginjo from Kyoto Prefecture
