Ceremony was held at Yaegaki Brewery in Japan in November
Sakabayashiï¿½@(a big ball made with cedar needlesï¿½j was
hung just outside the front entrance to a Yaegaki
sake brewery after the first sake of the year had
been pressed. As you can see the Sakabayashi is still
green. Over the next several months, the green Sakabayashi
slowly faded to brown. When the color had changed
to brown, it means that the sake had aged enough to
be ready for drinking. The Sakabayashi (shown in a
picture) was hand-made by the Yaegaki Sake master
Yaegaki Black Bottle Kuro-Bin Junmai Sake has received Silver Medal, 87 points at the 2010 BTI World Wine Championships.
ï¿½gClear. Grainy, yeasty rice bread aromas and vanilla custard with a soft,
spry, dryish light body and a powdered sugar,
jicama, and apple core accented finish. Pleasant.ï¿½h

Mirin adds a sweet flavor to sauces and glazes. It is a great
substitute for sherry or white wine with suger and it also
gives a nice glaze to teriyaki and BBQ sauces.
