CRSSD Festival to have a glamorous International Sake Day celebration with the inclusion of Richie Hawtin’s ENTER.Sake bar.
Known as a techno icon and world-renowned DJ, Richie Hawtin is also a devoted sake connoisseur and with his appearance at this month’s CRSSD fest will bring his own brand for an exclusive tasting.
ENTER.SAKE is a line of the Japanese libation developed after years of research which earned Richie an Advanced Sake Professional Certification by the Japanese Sake Brewers Association in 2014. Sparing no expense with this fall’s CRSSD Festival, Richie is using the platform to promote the ENTER. experience by curating a special ENTER.Sake menu at the festival to coincide with International Sake Day. The menu will feature three of Richie’s creations:
ENTER.SAKE BLACK – Honjonzo
”Our signature sake. Made in a mountain valley gap in the Japanese Alps between Nagoya and Nagano. Clean and pure as its idyllic water source; made with local rice.”
ENTER.SAKE SOOKUU – Junmai
“Fujioka Shuzo is an incredibly small brewery with Fujioka-san personally overseeing each step of the labor and time intensive process to produce a truly handmade sake. In 2002, 5th generation Masaaki Fujioka re-opened the brewery establishing the new sake brand “SOOKUU” aiming to brew a Sake with its taste reflecting a gentle clear blue sky.”
ENTER.SAKE SILVER – Junmai Ginjo
“A fragrant and aromatic sake with a hint of perceived sweetness. A perfect aperitif drink or introduction to sake. Good weight on the palate with a smooth finish.”
Can’t get enough of the rising sun? Join Richie and ENTER. residents Hito and Lee K at their after-party Sunday night at Bang Bang.
The ENTER. after party is just part of CRSSD’s “After Dark” programming running all weekend with DJ sets from Lee Burridge, Breakbot, and Cut Copy just to name a few.
