On Saturday, January 30, from 1pm-4pm, I will be leading a Saké tasting at the Wine Connextion in North Andover. This will be fun, informative and delicious. You will get to taste about 9 different Sakés and maybe even a Saké cocktail. You will learn all about Saké, from why they use those funny little cups to the differences between the strange terms Junmai, Honjozo, Ginjo and Daiginjo. There will also be food to sample so you can learn how versatile Saké can be and that it is not just for pairing with Asian food.
Some of the Sakés we will sample include:
Hakushika Junmai Ginjo
Nishinoseki Tezukuri Junmai
Onikoroshi Wakatake Ginjo
These are all very good, and were personally recommended by me to Sam Messina, the owner of the Wine Connextion. We will likely also be able to taste a Sparkling Saké, a Koshu (aged Saké), and a Dai Ginjo. I should also note that Sam is selling these Sakés at very low prices, making them a great value as well.
I hope you can make it to this tasting! It will be a perfect opportunity to learn more about this curious and tasty beverage.
