Sake to Me

Anyone that knows me will tell you I have a slight predilection towards all things Japanese. Kitchen knives, Samurai movies, sushi. Sake is certainly no exception. I recently had the pleasure of trying SakeOne's Momokawa Diamond, a Junmai Ginjo Sake made right here in the United States. In fact, SakeOne is the only producer of Sake in the US. With plenty of old-school clout and know-how, the resulting product is comparable to any Japanese-made Ginjo (premium grade) sake, and priced in a more approachable range.

The Diamond, second-driest in their Momokawa line, is nice and floral, with subtle fruit flavors. A beauty to drink and to pair with any number of foods.

Many people are reluctant to try Sake after many a bad experience with the cheap, nasty stuff readily available to most, but give SakeOne a try and you're in for a pleasant treat.

Yes! This is the exact sake we most often buy. Nice to know a pro like you thinks it's good, too. Cheers!

A SLIGHT predilection? Glad you enjoyed the sake and good you are spreading the word. Ought to make it more accessible and that is always a good thing.

That sake is fabulous. Their brewery is great fun to visit as well, if you are ever in Oregon. You can try them all and they make cocktails from them to taste.
