SakÃ© Day” (Friday, October 1)
Event Organizer’s Description:
“SakÃ© Day” (Friday, October 1)
Beginning Friday, and continuing throughout the weekend (while supplies last), we’ll be celebrating SakÃ© Day with a special tasting menu featuring:
Kenbishi (Hyogo): The oldest sakÃ© brand in Japan (1505 — no, that is NOT a typo!), and featured at the first Seattle SakÃ© Matsuri in 2009.
Sato no Homare “Pride of the Village” (Ibaraki): A delicious junmai ginjo from Japan’s oldest sakÃ© brewery (est. 1141), currently overseen by the Sudo family’s 55th generation. 869 years? They must be doing something right.
Bizen Maboroshi (Okayama): A fantastic junmai ginjo brewed with Omachi rice — the first (1866) designated sakamai (sakÃ© rice), and one of a handful of “pure” rice varieties that has not evolved as a result of cross-breeding. Omachi’s importance cannot be exaggerated, as it is present in the “family trees” of over 60% of all sakamai.
