I am so impressed. This was my first Sake Social experience and first ever “mail order” sake purchase. I live in a remote area in Wisconsin and good sake is VERY hard to find. I had recently returned from visiting Honolulu, and was spoiled for good sake, so I looked online and found SakeSocial. I was intrigued to find this sake (that is the only one drip-pressed in an ice igloo!) and I had to try. Well, it took about a week and a half to arrive in northern Wisconsin via UPS, adult signature required. I had UPS hold for pickup since I work weekdays and wouldn't be home. Oh my heavens, the name of this sake says it all. Ginga Shizuku can also be translated as “Galaxy Dew” and that pretty much describes the experience. It has a nose of white grapes and the first taste seems to playfully disappear, only to slowly turn into hints of floral, white pepper, melon, and melted snow. The mouthfeel is elusive, retreating, with a delicate effervescence that lifts you into the heavens. Simply divine! Crisp and clean. I will definitely be picking up another bottle for a special occasion. Thank you Sake Social!

Ginga Shizuku "Divine Droplets"

Junmai Daiginjo


Description: This dynamite sake is made not by pressing with a machine rather the brewers separate the sake from the lees by placing it in canvas bags and use gravity to drip the sake out slowly. Thus expect an amazingly silky quality to this brew with a nose full of pear and minerals. Talk about a great first sip. A clean start is filled with persimmon and plum flavors wrapped in a chewy and slightly fruity package. Yet the finish is more clean than fruity and more balanced than dry.
