Honolulu: SPRING NAMAZAKE TASTING at The Sake Shop

The Sake Shop


Event Organizer’s Description:
It’s officially SPRING at The Sake Shop! (Although it’s been hard to tell with all the VOG recently.) So what’s the best way to welcome Spring to Hawaii? Why to hold a SPRING NAMAZAKE TASTING, that’s how!

Join us this Saturday (02/26) as we sample some RARE seasonal sake that are only produced once a year in Spring. We’ll be sampling two Namazake, one Nama Nigori and one Junmai Daiginjo. One of these sake from Kamikokoro is very unique being brewed from White Peach Yeast.

We are also very honored to be hosting the President of Kamikokoro Brewery, Mr. Nobuhiko Fujii. Mr. Fujii will be pouring his wonderful sake and available to answer your questions.

Here’s the lineup for this Saturday.

Kamikokoro Tokagen Tokubetsu Junmai Nama Genshu
Unpasteurized rich type from Okayama prefecture. Very unique sake brewed with white peach yeast. Refreshing aroma of peach, lime and bamboo. Expansive mild taste with crisp acidity and long finish.

Kamikokoro Junmai Daiginjo
Flavorful, light and smooth type from Okayama prefecture. Fruity aroma of melon and pear harmonized with floral aroma. Medium dry sake with mild flavor and tranquil acidity.

Harushika “Shiboribana” Junmai Ginjo Nama
Unpasteurized Junmai Ginjo from Nara prefecture. Flavorful light and smooth type. Very fresh and clean aroma with a hint of strawberries. Perfectly balanced fruity flavors with soft texture.

Ichinokura Tokubetsu Junmai Nama Genshu Nigori
Unpasteurized cloudy sake from Miyagi prefecture. Very fruity nigori sake with apple, melon and lemon aroma. Complex flavors balanced well with crisp acidity.

So please stop by this Saturday to meet Mr. Fujii and sample his sake along with the other Spring Namazake. As always the tasting is complimentary. See you then!
