Announcing the line-up of Izumi Sakes at next week’s Kampai Toronto 2013 Sake Festival

Ontario Spring Water Sake Company will be featuring 9 sake products at Kampai Toronto 2013, which will take place on May 30 in the Fermenting Cellar, Distillery District, adjacent to our brewery.   Kampai tickets can be purchased at for $65 until midnight Thursday May 23, and $75 up to the day of the event, subject to prior sell-out.

Included in our lineup for Kampai are the following items, including a pre-bottled sake cocktail being offered for the first time to the public (inspired by the cocktail we have served by the glass at our tasting bar since our opening in 2011)!  The full line-up is as follows:

Izumi NamaCho Junmai Sake (once-pasteurized big flavour, pear-like fruit essence, off-dry, in LCBO)

Izumi Genshu Junmai Sake (undiluted, 17%abv, deep and long flavour, in LCBO periodically)

Izumi NamaNama Unpasteurized Sake (our Signature unpasteurized sake, bold flavoured balance of residual fruity sugar and fresh acidity)

Izumi Teion Sakura Unpasteurized Sake (a low temperature ferment sake, wine-like with green apple fruit notes, very popular with our restaurant customers)

Izumi Junmai Nigori Sake (cloudy, luscious)

Izumi Arabashiri #36 First-Press Single-Tank Sake (delicate, dry with subtle watermelon notes, 17.9% abv)

Izumi Fukurotsuri #37 Bag-Drip Sake (none-stress drip method sake is soft, smooth with subtle blueberry fruitiness, off-dry)

Izumi Arabashiri  #38 First-Press Single Tank Sake (essences of papaya, honeydew, dry finish, 18.0% abv)

Izumi “Sakepolitan” pre-bottled sake cocktail – a deliciously local, fresh and moderate strength (7% abv) take on the classic which features Muskoka cranberry juice with our own Muskoka water-based sake!

All of these sake items will also be available for sale at our brewery store, located in the Distillery District adjacent to the Fermenting Cellar where Kampai is taking place.  We are open before, during and after Kampai Toronto on May 30 – come check out a real sake brewery to see how sake is made!

We again look forward to seeing friends old and new at Kampai Toronto!
