Monthly Discovery Box Preview
Echizen Misaki Daiginjo "Gin no Shizuku"
Using the best Yamadanishiki from Hyogo, this is the brewery's top sake. It has won gold 10 years at the prestigious Japan New Sake Competition, balancing gorgeous ginjo aroma with soft taste.
Toko Cho Karakuchi Junmai Ginjo
This chokarakuchi (super dry) sake has a beautiful finish that does not conflict with the flavor of your meal and the dryness does not diminish from the umami of this sake.
Eikun Junmai Daiginjo Ichigin
Elegant aroma with silky smooth texture. It won a gold medal in the 2019 International Wine Challenge
Kawatsuru Junmai Ginjo Olive Yeast
The Olive fruit is a symbol of Kagawa. It is even used to feed Sanuki Wagyu. This sake is made with yeast isolated from Kagawa Olives.
Senkin Junmai Daiginjo Issei
Part of the Senkin Premium Series, Senkin promises the smooth and beautiful flavours of an ultra polished Junmai Daiginjo with a twist.
W Yamadanishiki Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu
The W in this series stands for both Watanabe Shuzo, and "Warai", laughter in Japanese. Japanese Comedy is played to the sake mash, to ensure happiness for the sake, the brewery staff, and the consumer.
Discovering and learning about sake just got a little more fun with the monthly discovery boxes from fine sake purveyor @interriceasia. Every month our sake sommelier friends there curate a couple of interesting bottles that's specially brought in for this purpose, and includes at leat a premium daiginjo or juinmai daiginjo. We got ourselves in the month of June, for example, the elegant @senkinofficial Junmai Daiginjo Issei from the Tochigi Prefecture-based producer, as well as the W Yamadanishiki Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu from @watanabesakebrewery of Gifu Prefecture.
Have always been hesitant to sign on for random sake monthly subscriptions as I’ve had some underwhelming experiences before with other distributors. Safe to say, the selections so far by IRA have exceeded my expectations. Definitely good quality sakes provided at an extremely reasonable price point (by SG standards)! Happy to get my sneak peak of next month’s box just cause I went down today to restock anyway
Have you ever walked into a food court, went round and round, and can’t decide what to eat?? Choices can be annoying when everything seems good, right? The same goes for sake selection. If you don’t have a clue what you like, and “anything” is ok for you, welcome to the Discovery Box where Adrian, the somm with good taste picks the sake just for you. No fret, no fuss. Sit back, chill and enjoy.
Nice to have 2 new tasty bottles every month without the pain of choosing! It’s been great so far
