Nuit Blanche Specials – Warm October Blend and Arabashiri (free run) Sake Flights

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News and Events

Nuit Blanche is almost upon us and the Distillery District will be one of this Saturday night’s hottest spots!  To celebrate we will be offering two very special items:

1.  Our special “Warm October Blend”, a gently heated, delicious sake created especially to warm you from the inside out!  The weatherman may be forecasting a cool weekend but a caraffe of our warm stuff ($10/small caraffe) will keep you feeling toasty!

2.  For those who love the fruity and smooth Arabashiri free run sakes we have a wonderful treat – a special Nuit Blanche flight featuring three of them!  Enjoy the arabashiri versions of each of Lucky Seven, Amakuchi#9 and Crazy Horse, all for the special price of $10!

Please enjoy the festivities, stay warm & safe, and hope to see you here!

North 44, Nota Bene now offering Izumi sakes

We thought you may be interested in hearing from time-to-time which restaurants are offering our sakes.

Our customers at our Distillery District brewery, retail store and tasting bar will not be surpised that top Japanese restaurants in the GTA such as Guu, Ki and Kaiseki Sakura are now offering our sakes – this is a great source of pride for us.  We have, however, also been fortunate to have as clients many famous non-Japanese restaurants such as Canoe, who has for their third consecutive cycle put one of our sakes into their wine pairings menu.

This week we are delighted to add venerable Toronto restaurants North 44 and Nota Bene to our list of restaurant customers.  We are certain that you will also be delighted with the foods that they will pair with our fresh, unpasteurized sakes!

The following restaurants are currently offering our products – please visit them to enjoy how are sakes are complementing their delicious cuisine!  (n.b. some other restaurants may be offering IZUMI sakes as they are now available for licensee purchase at LCBO stores)
