Daily Candy

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

We were delighted that our  SAKAYA Sake Club drew the attention of  Daily Candy which decided to include it in their 18 Last Minute Gifts list today.  So far, the response has been an impressive demonstration of their pulling power!

December 2009 Anniversary Celebration and Tastings

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Hard to believe but it’s been two years since SAKAYA opened its doors for the first time on December 8, 2007.  Since then we’ve been extremely fortunate to have welcomed countless visitors, befriended a number of them, and enjoyed sharing our experience and always expanding knowledge about premium sake with all.  Although opening SAKAYA was our dream, we had no idea that so many of you would embrace the idea with the excitement and enthusiasm that we’ve seen in our brief existence!

To express our gratitude for your incredible support and to celebrate our anniversary this holiday season, we’ve lined up back-to-back tastings of nuttin’ but the best this Friday and Saturday.  Yup, it’s an ALL DAIGINJO WEEKEND at SAKAYA! Thanks to our amazing importers and distributors, we’ll be pouring these and other ne plus ultra brews for you to experience and enjoy throughout this most festive month …
