Hakkaisan Produces Exclusive Club Sake

Renowned Niigata sake brewery Hakkaisan has produced a limited-edition sake for the Club’s 90th anniversary.

The premium junmai ginjo sake will be officially launched at the sold-out TAC 90th Anniversary Celebration on May 25.

According to Jiro Nagumo, owner of Hakkaisan and Club Member, the brewery wanted to produce a new style of sake that would appeal to an international audience.

“We are confident that Members will be able to enjoy the Club sake with different types of food and cuisine from all over the world,” Nagumo says in the May issue of INTOUCH magazine. “In addition, we hope this special sake encourages Members to taste and enjoy more sake.”

Members can preorder bottles, which feature an illustration of the Azabudai Club by Tokyo-based artist Luis Mendo, via the online Wine Shop or at The Cellar for ¥2,950 a bottle.

The sake will also be available by the tokkuri flask at CHOP Steakhouse, American Bar & Grill and Traders’ Bar.

Celebrating 90 Years

On May 23, 1928, the first American Club in Tokyo opened its doors at the former Iwamoto Building in Yurakucho. Ninety years later, we’re celebrating our rich history and decades of memories.
