NYC: Urban Sake Tasting Club Inaugural Event, October 2012

October 8, 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the Club!! Welcome to the Inaugural Meeting of the Urban Sake Tasting Club! The purpose of this club is to have regular get-togethers to taste, discuss, appreciate and learn about Japanese sake in a relaxed, fun environment.

Absolutely no prior knowledge of sake is required and beginners very welcome! Each meeting will have a theme to allow us to learn something new but still have a great time enjoying sake together.

Our first club tasting event will be held Oct 8th from 6:30-8:30 at Sakagura Restaurant. We’ll focus this month on tasting three fantastic Genshu Sakes. Genshu sake is an undiluted type of sake that is higher in alcohol and bigger in personality. Just for kicks, we’ll even try one of the Genshu sakes on the rocks as well.

The Genshus for our tasting set are Jizake Tenzan Junmai Genshu, Narutotai Nama Genshu Ginjo and Born Muroka Nama Genshu Junmai Daiginjo.

Tenzan, Narutotai, Born: All Genshu!

Sakagura will provide us with a wonderful appetizer to enjoy with our Sake. This time it will be a delicious “Kinoko no Ohitashi” (Seasonal Mushroom seasoned with Bonito Infused Soy).

The all-inclusive cost for the event is $34.00 which includes: Genshu Tasting Set, Kinoko no Ohutashi Appetizer, Sake Club Educational Handouts, as well as Tax and Tip. We’ll also have a giveaway raffle of some sake goods you won’t want to miss! SO grab a friend, gather up your sake questions and get your ticket now!
