Summer sake

Summer sake is already out - with the cool blue bottles. Last night I had a nice Tedorigawa and another I already can't remember (at a terrific little place in Ochanomizu). What are you excited to drink this year, and where are you going for it?

  1. I wish like you would not believe that I was making my annual summer trip to Japan this year (put off till October) so that I could comment on this thread. The lack of Sake, summer or otherwise, is killing me. Literally killing me.

    In general I have been dreaming of trying Watari Bune. I miraculously have never tried this Sake or any from Huchu Homare Shuzo and feel that I am an @$$ for not doing so.

    Please report back on the summer Sake selections that I may live vicariously through you.

      Or uncancel your annual summer trip, do not wait until October, and come here to drink with us.

        I'll look for Wataribune for you. Last night had summer sake from Izumibashi, the guys who do the labels with brightly-colored dragonflys and bugs. Another nice place, in Shibuya this time.

          Lemme know what you think of it!

          I've seen Izumibashi (from Kanagawa I think) but I've never tried it. Just looking it over in my Sake Encyclopedia here. Sounds like some good stuff.
