The SECRET WORD June 2011
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 we are featuring Harushika Umakuchi Yondan Junmai from Nara Prefecture. The rich and tad sweet nature of this brew comes from the extra addition of koji and steamed rice to "moto" (fermenting batch). The sake will normally sell for $28, but for you sake jockeys we will part with this 720ml for $15! 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!
