OYSTER HAPPY HOUR EVERY MONDAY
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.
Rice Polishing: 50%
Yeast: House Yeast
