The SECRET WORD August 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 women in a mostly male sake industry! And in particular women who just so happen to be the owners of really great breweries! This particular brewery in Hiroshima specializes in "Kijoshu" or aged dessert sakes (see SP-1 at the website), but they make a great Junmai Ginjo!
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.
We typically would sell the Hanahato Junmai Ginjo for $20/500ml but for you sake jockeys we will sell this brew for $10 per bottle. And the SECRET WORD is... check your email inbox! We only give out the SECRET WORD in the mailed Newsletter! So sign up for the Newsletter!
