Soul of Sake




Soul of Sake with Jessica Joly

Monday - August 21th, 2017 - Mizubasho “Water Flower"  Ginjo

6pm - 8pm | Special Promotion - $9 for glass of sake + 3 oysters

Mizubasho, of Nagai Shuzo from Gunma, brews this unique Ginjo made with Yamadanishiki rice that is polished to Daiginjo levels.  The name comes from the flower “mizubasho” that blooms in the Oze valley.  With notes of steamed sweet rice, cooked veggies, minerals, and wood tones, it is not super fruity like most Ginjos.  It is velvety on the palate and soft with a dry finish.
