ENTER.SAKE BLACK

23 Apr 2018 By

We Want.

From Uncrate.

Sake cups have been around since the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, but until now the liquid was mass-produced and inexpensive. Enter Sake changes that, offering sake from the Sekiya Brewery — a historic site established in 1864 as a because of the wealth of clean water from the mountains to make sake for travelers. Each single-serving cup is 180ml, 15% ABV, and allows you to take high-quality sake anywhere you go.

Honjozo

Bottle Size: 180ml Cup, 720ml Bottle, 1.8L Bottle
Rice Polishing: 65%
Alcohol: 15%

Tasting Notes:

A clean pure style of sake, with white mountain flowers on the nose. It has a wonderful clean and soft silky texture. The cleansing acidity also provides good structure and there is a subtle fruitiness with hints of mango, peach and pineapple.

ENTER.Sake is a boutique sake collection curated by music icon and technology visionary, Richie Hawtin. Richie has been exploring the world of sake for twenty years during his extensive trips to Japan. For the past four years, through his ENTER. events across the world, Richie has tirelessly promoted sake as a core part of the ENTER. experience. Originating inside his now dormant residency at Space in Ibiza, Richie created Europe’s largest sake bar, ENTER.Sake, stocked with special sakes not available anywhere else outside of Japan. Now ENTER.Sake is beginning a new phase to bring its sake collection to restaurants, bars, and wine stores across the USA and Europe.

Sekiya Brewery Co. Established 1864

Sekiya Brewery is in Kitashitara-gun located in a mountain valley pass in the Japanese Alps between Nagoya and Nagano.  For hundred of years the town was a waypoint and resting place for travelers between the two cities.  Sekiya Brewery was established because of the abundance of clean water from the mountains to make sake and the thirsty travelers crossing the mountains.  Now it is a state-of-the-art sake brewery with a tasting room and sake-focused restaurant built out of an ancient farmhouse in Nagoya.

CRAFT SAKE CUP RENAISSANCE

Sake packaged in single-serving 180ml, ready-to-drink cups have been part of Japanese pop culture since they were introduced for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Until recently, sake cups normally contained mass-produced, inexpensive sake to be sold at convenience stores in Japan. Sake brewers are now producing cup sake with premium sake in order to provide high-quality single serving sake for consumers and restaurants. Often these cups come with colorful, playful labels similar to craft beer in the USA. Now even in New York and San Francisco there are sake bars devoted to serving sake cups. We are proud to offer our ENTER.Sake Black in cups, so our fans can enjoy sake wherever and whenever they’d like. Kampai.

Note: ENTER.Sake Black Dot and Black are the same product.
