Aldi released a new saké to celebrate the Tokyo 2020 Olympics

Care for a glass saké while watching the Olympics?

2d ago

I personally love the Olympics - especially the Winter Olympics - because it gives me a chance to feel absolutely and completely passionate about sports I normally wouldn't care for as well as the chance to follow sports I kinda like but wouldn't normally get out of my way to watch. This year's Olympics, as we all know, will take place in Tokyo and Aldi has just released a a new limited edition saké as a tribute to the Olympics and to the Team GB.

The new Sawanotsuru Saké will be available in the UK from July 22 (£4.99 for a 30cl bottle), just in time for the opening ceremony, which is scheduled for July 2023. The Saké comes from Nada-Ku, Kobe and it is made from fermented rice.

It is, according to Aldi, an "adventurous alternative to dry white wine" and comes with “refreshing, clean and delicate taste”.

  • as Japan is standing to loose $20bn for these Olympics, wouldn't it be nice if a percentage of the sale stuff like this would go towards Japan IOC to help offset theor losses as a result of running empty venues/from the tourist trade?

  • Japan’s choice to plough on with Olympics for past 18 months, even though Covid was rife everywhere. IOC more interested in freebies tHey received. Prediction it will be shambolic……should have delayed it 🧐
