IZUMI Namacho now available at the LCBO!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News and Events

The LCBO started stocking IZUMI Namacho Junmai Sake (#260174  300ml $12.95) on their shelves a couple of days ago.  Namacho is a once-only pasteurized version of our signature Nama-Nama unpasteurized sake, which retains its fresh flavour while displayed at room temperature (most sake currently available in Ontario is pasteurized twice, in part to survive the long and sometimes-harsh sea journey from Japan).  Namacho is a delightful balance of fresh acidity with fruity sugar, and is wonderful on its own or paired with your favourite fish, meat or cheese dishes.

The first roll-out to LCBO stores is expected to be completed this week, and will include deliveries to the following 33 locations:
