Special treat tonight - Mizuho Kuromatsu Kenbishi junmai, from the Kenbishi kura in Hyogo...one of the oldest sakes still in production, dating back to 1505. (Photo by Bannister Bergen)
Sake available in Vancouver - Dassai, comes in '50', '39', and '23', all indicative of the milling rates on the rice used. So far they are only available in 300 ml at a hefty price, but if you have the money to spend the '50' is worth it.

Sake available in Vancouver - Hakutsuru Junmai. Cheap, easy and still made in Japan, there is something about a warm ochoko full of Hakutsuru that just feels like home...I only wish we could get it in cartons here.
