New York, NY – Tri-Vin Imports and Tussock Jumper are pleased to say ‘Kanpai!’, as they announce a new addition to their portfolio, Tussock Jumper Sake.
New and just in time for holiday season 2020, Tussock Jumper Sake is a refreshing and approachable beverage brewed in the Fushimi ward of Kyoto, Japan. Known as the birthplace of sake and famous for their soft, pure water, the brewery in Kyoto has created a Futsu-shu sake made from premium Koshihikari rice. Tussock Jumper sake is meant to be sipped, as well as used in cocktails.
President of Tri-Vin Imports and co-owner of Tussock Jumper Marc Oliveira sourced and developed the new product in response to growing demand from their retail customers, particularly in the Northeast region. Said Oliviera, “As a wine portfolio representing over 11 different regions of the world, we wanted to bring in a product that uniquely represented Japan, and also paired well with Asian dishes. We chose the sumo wrestler for the label because of the sport’s deep connections to the world of sake, and the rituals and traditions that are so interconnected with the history of both sake and sumo. We look forward to saying ‘Kanpai!’ with our customers, and continuing the Tussock Jumper tradition of helping people explore the world through what’s in their glass.”
