Right now it’s hanami season in Japan. Hanami is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers, usually cherry blossom, it is also an opportunity for everyone to cut loose, get together with friends, throw a blanket under the trees, grab some sake and have some fun!
The picture below is of the Shin-Sakai River in Kakamigahara City, Gifu Prefecture where Hayashi Honten brewery are based. The Kabuki actor, Hyakujuro, donated 1000 cherry blossom trees (sakura) to the city; they now line the river and when they bloom – as you can imagine – it is a spectacular site to behold, if you were there you’d want to have a party too! To commemorate this Hayashi Honten brew Black Face, a cracking junmai daiginjo, with Hyakujuro’s kabuki mask decorating the front label.
We wanted to bring some of the hanami festival fun to you here in the UK! Perhaps you are lucky enough to have some cherry blossom near you – you might have seen it burst in to bloom recently (or maybe it’s soon to come) – at any rate, it’s definitely getting warmer so grab a blanket, get some friends together and have yourself a hanami party!
We’ll help by offering – to all newsletter subscribers – 15% discount on ALL orders, AND free delivery on any orders over £60. If you’re a subscriber you will receive your discount code, if not all you need to do is sign up here!

Rocky Mountain has been voted “Best Sake with British Food” at this year’s Sake Experience at Hyper Japan. Over 1100 people visited the Sake Experience (a 44% increase on last year).
To celebrate our award I’m offering a 10% discount and free delivery for a half case (6 bottles+) of Rocky Mountain!
Rustic, raw and earthy
JAPANESE NAME OF SAKE: Gozenshu 9 Regular
TYPE OF SAKE: Junmai Bodaimoto
BREWERY: Tsuji Honten
This is a rustic, raw and earthy sake with malt, caramel and cereal all present on the nose. The flavours are smoothly presented, well-balanced, rich and deep. Again, caramel, malt and cereal are the predominant flavours and, when warmed (30°C – 45°C), Rocky Mountain favours the sweeter caramel notes.
Full umami in this sake means it’s a wonderful pair with richer flavours. Think cheese burger, think BBQ, think anti pasti, roasts, game, cheese, tomato sauces…
So, next time you’re reaching for a full-bodied red to go with your summer BBQ, why not grab a bottle of Rocky Mountain, wow your friends and experience umami matching like never before.
