Sake + Shochu Gumi

This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!

This complex, yet dry sake can be enjoyed chilled, at room temperature, or warm. Kayoko and I took a bottle of this sake to Kiraku (an izakaya in Berkeley) and shared a whole bottle (oops!) over shirako and fried chikuwa (fish cake).

Notice the funny phrases on the bottle describing Shintaro Nakaoka, a political figure of the late 19th century, for whom this sake is named after. Japanify recipe pairing: Natto Toast.
