Saké Sunday: Organic Saké

Later this month, SakéOne will release a couple new, organic Saké: Momokawa Organic Nigori and Momokawa Organic Junmai Ginjo. These will be the first Sakés to carry the USDA organic seal of approval. SakéOne just attained organic certification in April after complying with the standards of the USDA and the organic certifier Oregon Tilth.

The two new Sakés will come in 750ml and 375ml bottles. Plus, the Momokawa line usually comes in blue bottles but these new organic ones will come in more eco-friendly, green bottles. Even the bottle caps will be short to minimize materials and will be recyclable.

I look forward to tasting these organic Sakés.
