The SECRET WORD April 2007
Ah, 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. To those who 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 packaging. Yes, some people do buy sake on the bottle's look! No kidding! So it is imperative that we live up to our standard that at True Sake we will never sell a sake that looks good but doesn't drink well.
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's sake is a Junmai called Hatsuhana Utatane "First Flower Nap" and comes in a really beautiful tall and pounded bottle with a cork. This sake sells for $25/500ml bottle but for you sake-jockeys we will part with this brew for $12. And the SECRET WORD is Oprah!
