Known as “A Night to Remember”, Chizuko-san introduces those lucky enough to get a ticket some wonderful and usually hard to find sake. I attended the previous “Night to Remember” which you can read about here. This “Night to Remember” was no different as it was dedicated to the fantastic sakes from Daishichi Brewery. Above all, he helped explain why Daishichi so appreciates and respects the traditional kimoto brewing method. This gives Daishichi sake a wonderful dimension and sense of history.Mr. Ad Blankestijn, a visiting representative from Daishichi Brewery helped everyone present navigate the Delicious sakes.
In all, we tasted Daishichi Myoka Rangyoku, Horeki Daishichi, Daishichi Minowamon, Daishichi Classic, Daishichi Yukishibori, Daishichi Kimoto Umeshu, and Daishichi Kijoshu 2001. Tasting all this Daishichi left me with a strong urge to visit the brewery someday to see where it is made and taste it at it’s source! Someday this dream will come true!
The event itself was held at secret sake hideaway “Bohemian” with Mr. Kyotaka Shinoki as executive chef creating a special menu to suit the Daishichi. The food and sake together were excellent. This was a wonderful event – I’m so grateful to Chizuko-san for arranging and for Ad-san for being such a wonderful ambassador for Daishichi sake.
