Sake is finally on tap at Yardbird and it’s the freshest sake you’ll ever taste! It goes from the tank at the brewery into an impermeable, plastic 10L keg and because of the KeyKeg technology, its first contact with the outside world is when it’s tapped at the restaurant. Currently on draught is Tsubosaka Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu, which is undiluted, non-charcoal filtered, and unpasteurized. Its flavor is rich, fresh, and full of umami.
The Yagi Hi is our homage to Yagi Shuzo, an exclusive producer of ume related products, from shochu to umeshu, in Nara. This highball features Yagi San’s very own Japanese whisky umeshu which is brightened with Wilkinson soda water. The glass is rimmed with ume salt to add an extra element of salinity and acidity.
