[Sake Day] October 1st is Sake Day
Did you know that October 1st is "Sake Day"?
Sake Day was established in 1978 by the Japan Sake Brewers Association.
The following article regarding Sake Day is posted on the website of the Japan Sake Brewers Association .
Sake is a sake that is born and grows with the changing seasons of Japan, from winter to spring and summer to autumn, and is a sake created by Japan's unique climate . Sake can be said to be the fruit of the rich blessings of nature and the wisdom of the Japanese people . In particular, October is the month when seafood and mountain products are abundant all over the country, and Japanese sake becomes truly delicious.
In 1978 (Showa 53), the sake industry renewed its determination to properly inherit and pass on this sake, which can be called Japan's cultural heritage, to future generations, and with the hope of further love and understanding. October 1st has been designated as Sake Day.
If you are unsure of what to give as a gift to your loved one, why not celebrate ``Japanese Sake Day'' and give your loved one a gift of ``sake,'' a culture that has existed in Japan since ancient times?
The best way to experience the history of Japanese sake is to drink aged sake. Aged old sake has a long history dating back to the Kamakura period , and since then it has been prized as an extremely noble sake .
It is said that in literature from the Kamakura period, Nichiren Shonin, who founded the Nichiren sect, wrote praises for its taste. It is so special that even in modern times it is used at wedding ceremonies for the imperial family .
Among these precious aged sakes, the premium brand ``Kokatsu no Bishu'', which handles brands that are generally over 10 years old, carries carefully selected sets of Japanese sake ginjo old sake.
``GINJO-'' has selected only Ginjo aged sake with a gentle taste from a diverse lineup. Aged old sake with different ages and breweries. Enjoy comparing drinks while thinking about the region and era.
“Ginjo” contains sake that has been aged for a wide range of years, from 1993 to 2009. Even the same Ginjo sake has different tastes.
Even those who aren't good at sake can enjoy tasting and comparing sake from different sake breweries, such as ``2009 Gen no Taki,'' which has a light acidity similar to wine, and `` 2004 Mine no Yuki,'' which has a sweet aroma like apricots and honey. However, being able to enjoy the different tastes is the real pleasure of ``good old sake''.
October 1st is Sake Day. How about giving old sake that has been preserved by a sake brewery for generations to a loved one on this once-a-year occasion? I'm sure your partner will be excited about the experience for the first time.
