New Store Arrivals: The Fall Draft Selections Are Back - Hiyaoroshi Time!

Posted by Beau Timken in 2009, New Store Arrivals, Newsletter, October
Hiyaoroshi Yes - it is that time of year again for the seasonally released sakes known as hiyaoroshi (pasteurized once then rested for 6 months) to grace the shelves at True Sake. This year we have two old favorites and one very new brew! For those who like it light and dry we have the very user friendly Wakatake Onigoroshi. Those sake drinkers who like a little more richness and body turn to Urakasumi. And for those who like it big- gooey - and rich sweet try the new full-bodied Sawanoi from Tokyo prefecture.
