Sake Images - Photos From the Soul of Sake August 2011

Posted by Beau Timken in 2011, August, Newsletter, Sake Images
Please be a part of our "Sake Images" section by contributing your very select sake related photographs. I'm not looking for a batch of your pictures, rather I'd like to see one or two really powerful shots that could be in a brewery or at your own home tasting or event. Quality over quantity here people! And then write one or two sentences (if you want) about the picture that we can share with the other readers.

Please send these very specific and stellar photos to info @ with the subject line "Sake Images".

This month's photo is a stellar one by Carl Geenen.

"These are the hands of Aoshima-Toji of Kikuyoi Shuzo in Shizuoka Prefecture. He is examining the organically grown Matsushita Yamada Nishiki rice during the Shinseki process, waiting for the exact moment of perfect moisture content, which he is able to assess by sight, the result of many years of experience. I took this photo during a tour of Kikuyoi Shuzo in February."
