Mother's Day


This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection from April 2020!

Kayoko and I visited Onda Brewery in 2018. There, Onda-san told us about his concept for the 88 - to create a sake with deep structure, backbone, and umami. I’d say he achieved it with this malty, mushroomy, yeasty brew. Onda-san is so fanatical about his rice, that he grows it on site (very rare for a sake brewer)! He is especially proud of his rice and wants people to taste it in all it’s 88% glory - I’d say that’s confidence. Try it warm with savory fried snacks. Local take-out recommendation: Fried Soba Snack from Soba Ichi in Oakland.
