39 Sakes in 39 Days:  Day 37 Bunny Sparkling sake


We are celebrating Ten Thousand Waves’ 39th birthday with 39 sakes in 39 days at the phenomenal Japanese restaurant, Izanami.  Today we continue our discussion of finishing touches.  Vessels for  drinking cold sake are collectively known as reishu-hai, and are generally made of glass.  They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including small, stemmed glasses that are often placed inside a square wooden box.

Our 37th sake is Bunny Sparkling sake, a Junmai with a milling rate of 40% and no detectable sake meter value.  Mateo told us that people really love sparkling sake and I can see why.  This sake is from that Yamagata region of Japan and is naturally carbonated yeast in the bottle.  We thought Bunny tasted elegant and had a crisp, refreshing finish and paired well with Chef Kiko’s spicy cucumber salad.

And now you can taste Bunny Sparkling sake and the other fabulous sakes in this week’s flight.  In celebration of the 39th anniversary of the Waves, they bring you 39 sakes to enjoy each week featuring a different aspect of sake.  Taste the weekly flight from now until March 8th and get a stamp in your sake passport.  Collect stamps and win fantastic prizes!  On Fridays, go to santafe.com/contests/honeys-sake-symposium to enter our contest where you name all of the 5 sakes I’ve talked about that week (hint: you can read my blogs in case you missed hearing me talk about them).  On Mondays, we will draw one correct entry and that person will receive two $39 gift certificates to Izanami and a private hot tub for two at Ten Thousand Waves.  On March 9th we will draw our grand prize winner and that person will receive a complete therapeutic massage for two, a private hot tub for two, a multi-course dinner for two at Izanami and an overnight stay at Ten Thousand Waves.  We’re celebrating 39 years of Ten Thousand Waves- your passport to relaxation, from your friends at 98-1 Radio Free Santa Fe.
