The SECRET WORD December 2007

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. 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 Red Rice Sake - yes sake made with a red sake brewing rice!

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 Red Rice Junmai called "Hisui" from Kumamoto Prefecture that has a very beefy presence! It is juicy and a big mouthful of layered flavors. As we do not stock this brew permanently the price would be about $30/720ml with box, but for you sake-jockeys we will part with this brew in 720ml form for $15. WARNING WE ONLY HAVE 40 BOTTLES TO GIVE OUT! FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. A VERY LIMITED RELEASE. And the SECRET WORD is: Check Your Email Inbox - We only give out the SECRET WORD in the mailed Newsletter! So sign up for the Newsletter!
