Sake Xmas - The Keiko Christmas Guide

Posted by Beau Timken in 2009, December, Newsletter
It's been a year since our latest sake elf joined the True Sake team. Keiko reminded me of that last week and I decided to test what she had learned in a year of intensive sake training. Rather than have her do a ten brew blind tasting or have her take my 200- question multiple choice Sake Death Exam I decided to really test this elf in a very brutal and punishing fashion. I asked her to do her very own "Keiko Christmas Top Ten Gift Giving Ideas" for the newsletter. Thus herewith is an in-depth offering of sake presents that will surely thrill any deserving recipient from our very own Sake Elf.
  1. Aizen "Ai" 5 year-aged koshu
