I recently had the pleasure to meet Jouji Sato, the owner of the Hinomaru Jozo Brewery, and taste two of his Sakés. His Manabito Kimoto Junmai Ginjo is an exceptional Saké, one of the best I have tasted in some time.
Tim over at UrbanSake now has posted an interview with Jouji Sato. Please check it out to learn more about Sato, his Saké, and brewery. As his Saké has not been in the American market for long, this is a good opportunity to learn more about it.
