I always loved typing "BREAKING NEWS" on a headline... but I try to reserve such headline for really important news. And for Dassai fans, the news could not be any better: we have learned that Sakurai-san is in the process of registering label for Dassai 39 (photo courtesy of urbansake.com). In short, registration is the process that necessary for the saké to go from Japan and into my mouth.

Sakurai-san believes that Dassai 39 may become available by the end of the year; at this time, the pricing information has not been disclosed. (Nihonshudō's suggestion: how about $39 retail price?)

To whet your thirst, here are some past entries that describe my affinity for Dassai 39. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
