Sake Flight: Omachi

 

This flight celebrates the oldest sake rice cultivated in Japan, Omachi. Like Pinot Noir, the 'heartbreak grape' of the wine world because of its many challenges in cultivation and wine making, Omachi is notoriously difficult to cultivate and the challenges it poses to sake makers has attracted some of Japan's most talented brewers attempting to make the ethereal sake it is can make.  The format for this flight?  Buy any two of the bottles for $90 per bottle.  Delivery and the oshinko pickles are included.
