We at Sake Tengoku are especially thrilled to share with you the arrival of the long awaited Hiyaoroshi Sake, a sake that is symbolic of the changing of seasons, and is especially brewed for the Fall! This sake is pasteurized once and then stored for 8 months. From Shirataki Shuzo, in the Niigata Prefecture, the Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi Hiyaoroshi Namazume will be available in limited quantities on a first come, first serve basis.
Here are some of our tasting notes:
“Forward, fresh and fruity in the nose with notes of sweet melon, cherry, and hints of applesauce, lily and vanilla. On the palate this sake is off dry, medium bodied and rich with flavors of red plum, star anise, winter squash and notes of wet rock, accented by medium acidity, and a lingering finish.
This sake retails for $43.50 per bottle. Please inquire to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase this special Fall Release Hiyaoroshi Sake!
Shipments will begin the week of November 7th.
We look forward to hearing from you!!
