38 Sakes in 38 Days:  Day 26 Quintessence

We are celebrating Ten Thousand Waves’ 38th birthday with 38 sakes in 38 days at their lovely Japanese restaurant, Izanami.  This week we will be talking about dry versus sweet. 

Our 26th sake is Quintessence, a yamahai junmai with a milling rate of 65%.  This sake has a smv (sake meter value) of -33.  This is the sake that has a very unique and unusual taste and we thought it paired nicely with Chef Kiko’s corn fritters and fried chicken.

Now you can taste the Quintessence and the other fantastic sakes on this week’s flight and see for yourself how delightful it is to pair exquisite food with amazing sakes at Izanami.  On Fridays, go to santafe.com/passport to enter our contest where you name all of the sakes I’ve talked about that week (hint: go can read my blogs in case you miss hearing me talk about them).  On Mondays, we will draw one correct entry and that person will receive two $38 gift certificates to Izanami and a private hot tub for two at Ten Thousand Waves.  On March 4th we will draw our grand prize winner who will receive a complete therapeutic massage for two, a premium hot tub for two, a multi-course dinner for two at Izanami and an overnight stay at Ten Thousand Waves.  We’re celebrating 38 years of Ten Thousand Waves- your passport to relaxation from your friends at 98-1 Radio Free Santa Fe.
