The 55, The Flower Saké, Minato Harbor Can
Saké is an amazing beverage that enhances the flavor of food. Being 1/4 the acidity of wine, saké works well with Japanese food and beyond that with cheese, meats, vegetables, and is the world’s best paring with all fish.
Saké is 100% sulfite and gluten free.

Delicate structure with hints of fresh orange peel and cantaloupe. Beautiful sipping saké brewed in Japan’s leading saké region.
"Mystery" Maboroshi - Hiroshima
This junmai ginjo has subtle mineral and autolytic (biscuit, pastry) aromas with hints of nuttiness and fruit (plum and cranberry). It is medium-bodied, airy and pleasingly floral and musky. It finishes dry with a firm spiciness.
"The 55" Watari Bune Junmai - Ibaraki
Watari Bune is the name of a rare rice that was out of use since the 1920s due to its difficult growing patterns. This brewer revived Watari Bune and is now the only brewery using this rare rice. Deep, layered flavors of honeydew and pineapple with a lingering finish.
"Origins of Purity" Rihaku Omachi Junmai Ginjo - Shimane
Brewed with flower yeast and the oldest saké rice in existence, Omachi. This brewery represents some of the best saké from Western Japan.
Fantastic fresh flavor brewed with the famous heirloom rice Omachi. Balanced orchestration of flavor on the palate with a slightly earthy finish. New to Oregon.
Minato Harbor Namazake in a Can - Akita
The “can” saké is very unique. The saké has not been pasteurized so there is a slightly yeasty, spring flavor. Bright fruitiness with an almost hidden gamey finish. The can saké is also slightly higher in alcohol than most saké at 20%. The most unique aspect of this saké is the can container, holding the saké cold for an extended period of time.
"The Flower Saké" Chokaisan Junmai Daiginjo - Akita
Brewed with elegant flower yeast, this is a one of a kind saké experience. The floral aroma and flavor offers a silky smooth experience not found in any other saké. Simply put, “a glass of awesomeness.”
