sake selects april 2009Welcome to "True Selects" - featured sakes that are selected and championed by Miwa and Lynette - our two resident sake studs. As we can only stock so many different brands of sake - think limited space - this effort is a way to offer sakes that we wouldn't usually carry. They will select by price-point, uniqueness, availability, and other factors that make these selections unusual for the store.

Miwa's Pick: 

Dewazakura Oka "Yamadanishiki" 
From Yamagata Prefecture
SMV: +5 / Acidity: 1.4 / Rice: Yamadanishiki milled to 50%
$24 / 500ml

Those who love Oka "Cherry Bouquet", try this Ginjo made with Yamadanishiki rice. It has a more robust texture and savory rice tones compared to its sister brew. For those of you who enjoy Kikusui Jumai Ginjo might find this sake enjoyable as well.

Lynette's Pick: 

Wakaebisu Ninja "Connoisseur" 
From Mie Prefecture 1853.
SMV: +6 Acidity: 1.4

A well-built Junmai that is much more complex than the easy nature leads one to believe. A classic example of a dry sake that tastes fruitier than indicated for a clean and fulfilling flavor experience.

Miwa's Recession Buster For High End Sake: 

Daishichi Minowamon Junmai Daiginjo

If you’ve never tasted this masterpiece – there is now no excuse!

Regular price $80/720ml
Recession special price: $50/720ml (save $30!!)
A case order (of 6 bottles) will get additional 10% off!!!

As a SAKE BONUS Miwa is running a Hiyaoroshi Nama Special for those who cannot get enough of the very tasty Fall/Winter brews: The deal is buy one get one for free! WOW What a deal!!!!
