Honolulu: SUMMER NAMAZAKE TASTING at The Sake Shop


Summer’s here and that means it’s time for some Namazake! “Nama” sake is sake that has not been pasteurized and must be kept refrigerated (almost all sake are normally pasteurized twice). This results in a sake with a fresh and lively flavor. Most Namazake are also genshu, which means they are undiluted and full strength. Genshu sake can be up to 20% alcohol (compared to most sake at 15% alcohol) and can add a little zing and spiciness.

This Saturday we are going to sample the full spectrum of Nama.

Dewazakura Dewasansan (Nama Genshu)
Kamoizumi Red Maple (Aged Nama)
Masumi Arabashiri (Seasonal Nama)
Miyasaka 50 (Yamahai Nama)
Kamoizumi Summer Snow (Nigori Nama)

And just for good measure we going to throw in two regular sake as well.

Kokuryu Junmai Ginjo (Black Dragon)
Kokuryu Tokusen (Crystal Dragon)

All of these make great gifts for Father’s Day as well. Hope you can make it!
