Our CNY Special “Find the Golden Koi” event is back and there are more prizes to be won this year! Instead of having just the Imayotsukasa Golden Koi, we’re adding 2 more ultra-premium sakes to the prize pool, and we're limiting to 50 sets of blind boxes only - so you can have more chance to huat!
About the Grand Prize, Imayotsukasa Gold Koi Nishikigoi (worth $670)
1) It's super exclusive, only 84 bottles produced this year, worldwide
2) We only managed to get our hands on 6 bottles, one of which we are using for this event
3) The pottery bottle is dunked in pure gold
4) the box which holds the bottle is made of handcrafted Paulownia wood
5) The characteristics of the sake are kept secret, reserved for those privileged to taste it
About the 2nd Prize, Echizen Misaki Aged Daiginjo Fufu (worth $268)
1) This a limited-edition packaging, only 500 bottles are produced
2) This special aged Daiginjo is brewed painstakingly for over a month and aged for more than 3 years
3) The sake comes in a beautiful lacquer box, making it a great gift and display
4) Echizen Misaki's Brewmaster used to work for the famous Kokuryu Sake Brewery. This sake is his reinterpretation of their Ishidaya sake
About the 3rd Prize, Ishizuchi Junmai Daiginjo Vanquish (worth $238)
1) The giftbox is a tribute to the famous Mount Ishizuchi, one of Japan's seven sacred peaks
2) The mantra for this sake is “To defeat, to conquer” – fitting for anyone who has set high goals for themselves in the year of the tiger
3) The rice used to make this sake, Matsuyamamii, was developed by cross-straining a heirloom rice and has a large grain with low protein content that can be polished to a very low level. You will be able to taste an extreme version of this with Vanquish
How does the event work?
This is a blind box event where ONE of the boxes contains the Golden Koi worth $670!

Although i didn’t win the bigger value sakes ! But it was a fun experience to try sake that I haven’t tried ! Can’t wait to try my luck again next year
Did not get the golden koi.
Got 2 junmai daiginjo
Fun experience. While it was delayed, the team was prompt to provide updates and explain the logistical situation in Japan.
Find the koi
Quite exciting. Not knowing what you will get and still receive quality sake . :)
