After my fun Kubota Adventure at Decibel, I didn’t want to miss the Kubota event at Sakagura!

This time I was in for one of my new favorite sakes…Senshin Junmai Daiginjo!! Today, Sanjo-san, visiting from the brewery that makes Kubota, was serving a special and beautifully presented Kubota Junmai Daiginjo set. This set included Kubota Manju Junmai Daiginjo, Tokugetsu Junmai Daiginjo, and last but not least Senshin Junmai Daiginjo.

I was delighted to celebrate Kubota sake and Chizuko-san of Sake Discoveries joined me! We had fun enjoying sake together and toasting to Niigata sake from Asahi Shuzo. Sanjo-san stopped by and introduced us to his sake. We also got some special gifts, too!

Sanjo-san is of course the gentleman that gave me tour of the Kubota Sake Brewery (Asahi Shuzo) on my 2008 trip to Niigata. I was delighted to come out and support any Kubota event happening in New York.

I hope Sanjo-san makes another trip to New York this year. I’m always happy to toast this delicious sake! Kanpai!
