Next up on the lineup of Counter Tastings at The Oak Barrel for 2023 is the ever-delightful Chiebijin, from Nakano Shuzo in Oita prefecture. Produced by Nakano for over 140 years, the Chiebijin brand is renowed for its sweet, delicate and approachable style, as well as for their strong relationship with local tea farmers leading to the production of their black tea umeshu and lemon tea liqueur.

Recently the brewery has also been releasing some excited experimental sake on limited run, recognisable by their mirrored branding an Ura-Chiebijin name, as well as a yearly limited release of Blanc Cuvee – a very unique sake made using wine yeast.

The Oak Barrel is formally adding Chiebijin to its core lineup, and to celebrate they’re hosting a free counter tasting of four Chiebijin products at the front of the store.

The linup will include:

  • Chiebijin Premium Junmai 
  • Chiebijin Yamadanishiki Junmai Ginjo 
  • Ura-Chiebijin Origarami Junmai Ginjo 
  • Chiebijin Lemon Tea Liqueur 

Discounted sales for bottles will also be available on the day both in-store and online.
