Steve, thanks for taking part. It makes a world of difference to have the sake master (winemaker?) join in the thread. And I am sure it translates to increased sales, both now and later.

I for one am still hoping for an appearance of Momokowa blue bottles. They were in that wine trellis thing. And unless it was an old photo, why were those bottles at hand? Sefish conspiracy theory.



I always enjoy spreading the gospel of fine sake to anyone who will listen! I used to be in the Oregon wine business (almost 30 years) and have been running SakeOne now for over four years. It takes great people to make great product and we have an excellent staff of sake brewers and support team!

Not sure what you mean by the Momokawa blue bottles and wine trellis thing - unless you speak of the display racks in our tasting room...

Kanpai!

See here. PolarBear is hoping that these will show up on woot very soon since they were used in a photo within the past week. Logic: bottles used in photo = bottles lying around = bottles soon to be ours!

Thanks for the assist.

And the blue bottles do look good in the holder.

Wow, those blue bottles were offered back in August 2007. I wonder if they got more, or just hold on to all of their bottles.

This is the one of a (very) few things good about living in Connecticut: being able to order from wine.woot. Looking forward to trying the G50. I saw some cocktail recipes on SakeOne website, may come in handy for New Years!

Ok..just my two pennies.... just cuz you like and or love wine does not mean you will like and or love sake. I've been doing the wine thing for 25-30 years. I've tried to appreciate sake, but no can do. Different animals..totally. But that's just me..I have other long time wino friends that enjoy, some that don't. More don't than do. I guess my only point is that just because you may enjoy wine, this may not be in your wheelhouse. And from what I can tell tell if you do enjoy sake this looks like a pretty darn nice deal.

Merry Christmas to all...

Also, the same problem exists with both wine and sake. If you are trying it for the first time, and you try a bad one (or cheap one), chances are you will not like it, and just make up your mind that you don't like it. I have found this to be the case with many people, for both wine and sake; they claim to hate it, but then when I put a good quality product in front of them, their mind is changed instantly.

Absolutely real!

...and it sounds like you got some cheap commercial plonk. Good saké is absolutely wonderful, can be rather like sweet fragrant water, no burn at all, even at 18%.
I should have gotten three.

I can't imagine that you'll be disappointed for trying it, even if you don't like it. But I can't imagine someone not liking sakè but liking wine. (Of course I know that these people exist and there's nothing wrong with them.)

Of course wine! offers saké when I can't get any.

What are the odds of saké being sold again? Anyone?

I haven't splurged on sake in a long time. Here's hoping that this purchase was worth it

First time trying sake outside of a bar.

Smooth, amazing drink even at 18%.

Fragrant with a nice aftertaste

Like a supersmooth supersweet white wine

definitely worth the price, should have gotten 3 packs.
