The SECRET WORD August 2009
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.
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 Sasaichi - a Junmai from Yamanashi! That's right - Yamanashi Prefecture - our first brew from that part of the world. Not many Yamanashi sakes are imported into the US - so this may be your first taste of that part of Japan known for wine, pear and grapes. Clean, crisp, with a hint of bitterness - look for a little cocoa flavor down deep. We would usually sell this brew for $27 or so, but for you sake-jockeys we will part with all 720ml for $10. 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!
