This Summer Brings Back Two Sake Projects and Introduces Another

We're taking June and July to do some R&D (research and development). After this long year we figured it was time to finish some projects we've been working on for a while.

Jackalope Teeth Milk

First we're working on a new recipe for the Jackalope Teeth Milk, our horchata sake. We'll probably stick to just the boozy one for right now. We're starting with a Korean makgeolli base and adding in the secret spices. We think that this milky base and ricey sweetness will make a great drink. Don't worry, we'll need a few taste testers and will keep you readers in mind.

Old Mose

Next we are waking up the bear! We feel really good about our last Old Mose experiment and are ready to push it all the way. The latest batch is less earthy and mushroomy and has more fruit and tart bite.

Finally we're playing around with our red sake. Don't worry, we're not replacing the El Colorado, just trying a different take. We found a different red rice yeast that adds a deeper red color and brings out some more of the fruitiness. Right now we are calling it Colorado Rose after the Colorado Rose Onyx that was mined in Beulah, Colorado and used in the state capitol building.

We're pretty excited about all of these and can't wait to share them with you.
