Sake Exclusives - Urakasumi Honjozo Genshu

Posted by admin in 2009, March, Newsletter

Yes, buried deep in the text of this Newsletter is this little blurb about a brew that I asked for and received and will drink all of if you do not steal a bottle first.

Long story short - was at a "whale" restaurant in Tokyo and this little beauty was the "bring in the e-coupon for a free glass of sake" free sake at a killer Izakaya in Shinzuku. The owner is from Miyagi Prefecture and is very good friends with our friend Koichi Saura owner of Urakasumi brewery. When I received my free "glass" which was actually a masu of a brew in a really cool gold foil wrapping I saw the friendly and comforting words Urakasumi. I had never tasted this Honjozo before and as soon as the masu hit my table I called Saura-san - but quickly hung-up noticing that it was after 10pm. Long story even longer - I liked it so much that I called both Saura-san and his exporter and said let's get this to the US immediately! They heard me - they felt me - they made me very happy! The sake was registered and I received two cases in the last two weeks. Apparently that is all! But I will try my best to "score more". We may have a bottle or two left. Maybe!
