Sake Images - Photos From The Soul Of Sake June 2011
Please send these very specific and stellar photos to info @ truesake.com with the subject line "Sake Images"
This month's sake image comes from our very own Miwa:
|"How often do you get to see an attic of a sake brewery AND find something precious there? These photos are from my trip to Tsukinokatsura Brewery, located in Fushimi district of Kyoto. Loads of koshu (aged-sake) are stored in very special ceramic jugs. Once upon a time, jugs were made in a nearby town, but this is no longer the case. The brewery had to search for the same type of clay, and they found it in China. (Newer jugs are produced there.) As I surveyed the room, I was told that one of our U.S. Presidents was given a bottle of 20-year-old koshu when he was in town. I wonder if he still has the unopened bottle or if he drank the whole thing."
