New Store Arrivals January 2005
Tamanohikari Yamahai Junmai Ginjo - This is a full-bodied arrival from the Kyoto/Fushimi area and is a great value ginjo at $20/bottle. As part of your learning process it is important to try a Yamahai or Kimoto old-method sake at least once. This particular robust ginjo is a full-figured Yamahai that would be embraced by any fan of big flavors.
Kikusui Nama Genshu Honjozo - Talk about the perfect subway sake! The brewers who produce our number one selling ginjo in the store make this little 180ml can of honjozo (added alcohol) sake. A product of Niigata, this little monster talks the talk and walks the walk. Typically dispensed by coin machines in Japan this genshu is the ultimate "decompression" sake that most drinkers slug down before their long train rides home. It is both unpasteurized and undiluted, which makes it a 19% rounded slightly sweet can of attitude. $5/can.
