Fukano Amabie release is a robust Manzanilla Sherry single cask that yielded just 180 bottles with Japanese folklore as the label art. The character is a Yōkai 妖怪, that in 1846 delivered a prophecy, “good harvest will continue for six years from the current year; if disease spreads, draw a picture of me and show the picture of me to those who fall ill" to help heal the sick. During COVID-19, depictions of Amabie have become popular because of its symbolic countermeasure to the pandemic. [link]


Ohishi Madeira “7” year is the sister cask to our very well received single cask from 2020. This release is 41.5% ABV (last year’s was 41.2%) and carries much of the same characteristics of the previous and is a year older. If you missed out on that one, or if you just drank your bottle and need a replacement, now is your chance to re-up your supplies.  


The Fukano Amabie will retail for $99.99 and the Ohishi will be $79.99, but our buddy David OG at K&L has set up a special link for the members to get both bottles for only $140 ($40 discount). This is a presale and pick-up will be happen in late February. Please place your order now because the deal is limited and if demand is even a fraction of what it was for the last Ohishi Maderia Cask, it will sell out very quickly. Order our bottles here [link].


Big thanks to David OG and Chris Uhde for making this happen!
