Snow aged Wagyu

Anyone tried this? Wagyu aged in snow covered storage.

haha. Interesting. The snow room thing seems to be a recent eco-friendly marketing trend for Japan.
Here is the natural sake pairing: also from Niigata prefecture, also snow-aged :slight_smile:

Hakkaisan did a big marketing push for this sake 3 years ago or so. It is imported and distributed by Mutual Trading, so it should be easy enough to track down. I think they should have it, or be able to get it, at Sakaya. You are in NYC, right?

If you are looking for an online source, it looks like Tippsy has it.
