April 2011 Sake Tastings

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

After launching this year’s Masumi Arabashiri and  Chokaisan Junmai Ginjo Nigori Namazake in NYC, the focus of  our April tastings shifts to showing our support for the brewers in the area of Japan affected by the earthquake and tsunami disaster.   For the balance of this month and into May,  we will feature sake from Miyagi, Iwate, and Fukushima prefectures as one small means of contributing to aiding the recovery.   Please join us to show your support through sake!
