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.

Think of bitter chocolate and chicory essences that explode in a larger vessel. A sake drinker's sake for certain! We would normally sell this sake for $40, but for you sake jockeys we will part with this 720ml for $20.
