The SECRET WORD July 2008
Ah, at last we have reached the end of this Newsletter and that of course means that we have come to the now-famous SECRET WORD. To those who are new - the SECRET WORD is a chance for you to try a sake of note for half of that sake's original price. Just for reading this Newsletter. It is our way of saying thank you for trying to understand the wonders of sake. And in this regard we typically select a sake with a story, and this month's story is big brewery making small batch sakes!
Please remember the rules: only one bottle per reader, and don't tell your buddy at the moment if he/she isn't a Newsletter subscriber, always use a hushed or secret agent voice when saying the SECRET WORD, and lastly for those who have their sakes shipped we can only include the SECRET WORD sake in a four-pack purchase - meaning you must buy three other sakes.
This month's brew is a Tokubetsu Junmai from the very large Ozeki kura in Hyogo prefecture. Ozeki "Wayukraku" roughly translates to "easy feeling or easy drinking" and at $12/720ml with a cool box we think that price is quite easy! And the SECRET WORD is... Well, we only give out the SECRET WORD to those on our mailing list! So sign up for the Newsletter!
