The SECRET WORD September 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 "Nigori." We get many requests for an unfiltered sake to be the Secret Word Sake so here it is!
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 brew is a deep and solid Nigori Genshu from Aomori Prefecture made by our friends at Momokawa Brewery. They don't mess around with this guy, as it is 19% pure power wrapped in a fluffy coating. This Nigori Genshu usually sells for $24/720ml bottle but for you sake-jockeys we will part with this brew for $12. And the SECRET WORD is "Happy Anniversary"
