Honolulu: Autumn Hiyaoroshi at The Sake Shop


It’s Autumn! For most people around the world this means the seasons are changing, the temperature has begun to cool off and the leaves are starting to change color. Unfortunately in Hawaii there are only two seasons … dry and rainy.

So to help everyone get into the spirit of “Autumn in Hawaii”, The Sake Shop is turning to sake (big surprise) as we host our first Autumn Seasonal Sake Tasting this Saturday from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm.

We will be sampling three Autumn Hiyaoroshi from our friends at Japan Prestige Sake Association. (See Right for explanation of Hiyaoroshi.)

Sawanoi “Genrokugura Hiyaoroshi”
Rich and smooth type. Tranquil aromas of brown sugar, caramel and dry grain. Mild and matured complex flavors with viscous texture. Tokyo prefecture.

Wakatake Onikoroshi “Akino Ki-Ippon”
Light and smooth, rich type. Very smooth, alluring dry sake with refreshing fruity aroma of muscat. Nicely balanced, expansive savory flavors. Shizuoka Prefecture.

Urakasumi “Hiyaoroshi”
Light and smooth type. Savory aroma of rice harmonized with fruity aromas. Nicely balanced mild flavors with soft texture. Miyagi Prefecture.

Because these are seasonal sake there is only a limited supply available so be sure to stop by the shop for a taste this Saturday. Once we run out they are gone!
