New Store Arrivals – Hello Organic Sake!

Posted by admin in 2005, April, New Store Arrivals, Newsletter

True Sake used to carry a designated "organic" sake, but the importers decided to stop representing it. Then I recently discovered that one of my favorite sakes in the store uses organic rice in its production (thank you Miwa). So I decided to scour the US-imported sake offerings and consequently have collected two more quality organic sakes to fill out our current inventory. Each of these sakes uses organic rice and pure water, and represents the "greenest" sakes available from Japan. Takara Sake Brewery in Berkeley makes a sake called "Organic," but we do not carry it as it is not imported.

  • Daishichi Shizenshu Kimoto "Big 7" from Fukushima.
    Junmai. SMV: +2 Acidity:1.4 $35/720ml
  • Tokun Sharaku "Samurai" from Chiba.
    Junmai Ginjo. SMV: +2 Acidity: 1.3 $30/720ml
  • Koshino Hoden "Organic" from Niigata.
    Junmai Ginjo. SMV: +5 Acidity: 1.4 $30/720ml

Each of these sakes are packaged brilliantly, but the important stuff is on the inside. They make great gifts for those looking to keep pure of mind and body. Eat right and drink right!
