Our order of Autumn seasonal sake has arrived, which means it’s time for a sake tasting. This Saturday we’ll be sampling FIVE different Hiyaoroshi sake that are only produced during this time of the year.

We’ve brought in our three favorite Hiyaoroshi sake from last year along with two new ones from Ohyama and Kikusui. These sake are limited in production so once we sell out they are gone until next Fall.

Hiyaoroshi sake is pasteurized only once instead of twice like regular sake. The result is a special flavor perfect for Autumn.

Here is the lineup for this Saturday (10/29).

OHYAMA HIYAOROSHI Tokubetsu Junmai
We’ll be sampling Ohyama Hiyaoroshi for the first time with everyone this Saturday. Not sure what to expect from this Yamagata sake, but based on Ohyama’s other sake we’ve tried it should be something really good!

KIKUSUI HIYAOROSHI Junmai Ginjo
New to the shop this year, Kikusui Hiyaoroshi Junmai Ginjo from Niigata. We’ll also be sampling it for the first time with everyone this Saturday. I’ve read that it has a lot of umami with a semi-dry finish. Anything that comes in a cool looking blue bottle has got to be good.

SAWANOI GENROKUGURA HIYAOROSHI “FOUNTAIN OF TOKYO” Junmai Ginjo
Rich and smooth type sake from Tokyo prefecture. Tranquil aroma of brown sugar, caramel and dry grain. Mild and matured complex flavor with viscous texture.

WAKATAKE AKINO KI-IPPON HIYAOROSHI “DEMON SLAYER” Tokubetsu Junmai
Very smooth alluring medium dry sake with refreshing fruity aroma of muscat. Nicely balanced, expansive savory flavors. Light, smooth and rich type sake from Shizuoka prefecture.

URAKASUMI HIYAOROSHI “MISTY BAY” Tokubetsu Junmai
Light and smooth type sake from Miyagi prefecture. Savory aroma of rice harmonized with fruity aroma. Nicely balanced mild flavor with soft texture.

So please stop by the shop this Saturday to sample some seasonal Hiyaoroshi sake. Although the leaves don’t really change colors here in Hawaii, we’re sure these special seasonal sake will help everyone get into the mood of Autumn.
