Drinks »Kan Chiku

kan chiku sakeKan Chiku is Japanese for 'cold bamboo' and it comes in a sparkling, bright blue bottle that drew my eye at a recent (and detailed) trip to Mitsuwa Market. I took a risk by not getting my favorite (and frequently mentioned) sake Wakatake, and while Kan Chiku didn't quite triumph, we certainly enjoyed it very much.

Like Wakatake, it's smooth and easy to drink but with more of a ricey flavor. Its history is impressive too:

Kan Chiku has been produced for more than 350 years by the Totsuka family. Sixteen generations of the Totsuka family have devoted themselves solely to producing the finest Hand-Made Sake.

Plus, it was featured on Iron Chef once!
