HAD 81: Sake

Time to take a trip, away from our normal drinking places. It’s time to go east, not to the moonshine of our home, or to the isles of Scotland, but all the way to Japan. Time to talk about it’s national drink, Sake. So say Kanpai and Have a Drink.

  • Brewery’s description: Aged in tank for 3 years, this umami-rich sake finishes dry and clean from precise fermentation and water minerality. This unusual juxtaposition makes it stand out as a savory sake that will not weigh you down. Star-Filled Sky is brewed in Japan’s least populated prefecture where there is an abundance of natural elements available. This isolation leads to nights with complete darkness, where the stars are in full view.
