The Sunflower Sake Club uses its monthly selections to deep dive on special bottles, special stories, and education: teaching you how to understand, pair, and enjoy sake at home.
These 2-3 bottles may be some combination of 180ml, 300ml, and 720ml formats. With each bottle you'll receive a detailed backstory, tasting notes, recommended pairings, and a breakdown of why the sake tastes the way it does. A few shipments/year may include small additional items such as a locally made sake cup, a delicious otsumami (sake snack), or a holiday card! 🌻
The monthly club contains a mix of everyday, special occasion, and seasonally released brews, although selections will always differ from the seasonal club. If you have any strong preferences with regard to sake, please let us know ahead of time-- we're happy to switch out bottles for you as needed.
Club members also enjoy the following benefits:
- Two free taster flights of club sake for those picking up their shipment in person ($10 for non-members), or
- Free delivery to the Portland metro area the Thursday following club day
- Discounted shipping (Oregon only)
- $0 corkage for club members
- While current, club selections are discounted 10%
- Classes and events are discounted 20%
- Exclusive choice and use of a personal sake cup from the Sunflower collection, which is stored at Sunflower in a special drawer under your name. This benefit will redeem at the opening of Sunflower Sake's permanent location in Summer 2022. 1 per person, up to 2 per membership.
Important notes & disclaimers:
New Members: All new memberships are charged at time of enrollment for their first pack. Enrollments received within the first week of the month will be eligible to receive that month's club pack if supplies are available. Otherwise, the enrollment charge will be applied to the following month's release.
Waitlist: Membership slots may be limited as supplies depend on 3-4 months of advance planning. A waitlist will be maintained when club spots are unavailable.
Free local delivery: Club orders are eligible for free local delivery in lieu of in-store pick up. Please choose the associated option when placing your order.
Shipping: Due to limitations in the Shopify platform, subscriptions can only be processed as "shipped" items, regardless of whether or not you plan to pick them up in person. Our workaround is as follows:
- When selecting your club membership, please indicate your preferred delivery/pick up option from the drop-down menu.
- When checking out, select "shipping" (pick up/delivery will return an error message) and enter your shipping information as you normally would. You should not be charged for shipping.
- We'll be using your drop-down selection to inform your preferences. If you need to make adjustments in the future, please contact us directly.
While shipping to WA and CA is enabled in club checkout, actual shipping is only available in Oregon. Additional states won't be eligible for shipping until late 2022.
For the monthly club, Oregon shipping is a discounted flat rate of $20. For the quarterly club, shipping is $30. When both monthly + seasonal can be combined, total is $35. If your preference is to receive your club order via shipping, the charge will be applied at the time of payment processing. Please also note that per the requirements of the OLCC, an adult with photo ID must be present to receive the delivery.
Adding to Club Shipments: If you'd like to add a'la carte bottles to your club shipment, there is no additional charge for local delivery (still free) and for shipping, note that it is very cost effective to increase your order up to a case!
Payment: Subscription payments are processed on the first of the month. A valid credit or debit card is required for membership unless other arrangements have been made.
Limited Product Availability: While active, each club's selections are 10% off for members of the respective club. However, please note that club selections may be subject to availability. This is especially true for seasonal items which are imported and stocked in very limited quantities.
