The SECRET WORD August 2005

Posted by admin in 2005, August, Newsletter, The Secret Word

True Sake LogoAh, 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. For those that 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 from a brewery in Fushimi, which is outside Kyoto called Tamanohikari. Yes the same brewery that was featured as a previous "story" SECRET WORD sake. That sake was a Junmai Dai Ginjo made with Omachi brewing rice – the most ancient brewing strain and father to many of today's popular brewing rice varietals.

This brewery specializes in Omachi rice, that is their passion and that has been their core. But they too listen to the market and have created a sake that is lighter and more fragrant than any sake that they could make with Omachi rice. And more importantly they make this month's SW sake for you as it is for Export only. The Taminohikari "Kaori Ginjo" is what they think that American's would like in a sake. You be the judge. Typically the sake sells for $30, but it is yours for $15. And remember just one bottle per reader please, and don't forget to whisper the SECRET WORD, as others want to know why you get your booze for cheap! This month's SECRET WORD is Gourd.
