The SECRET WORD December 2008
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 "gift-giving." December's SW sake is a kinpaku or "Gold Flake" sake from Hakushika brewery. This is a popular gifting style of sake in Japan.
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 gold flake sake is made with Yamadanishiki rice and comes in a cool red box. It is the best SW sake to pass on - or re- gift! The sake usually sells for $28/720ml bottle but for you sake- jockeys we will part with this golden brew for a mere $14. And the SECRET WORD is... check your email inbox!
