8: Ian Murray and Peggy Gale, our President, prepare for the arrival of the new members with a little swig of aged saki, in a barrel which Peggy brought back from Japan over ten years ago. The question: is it still good? or is it even better? Decision: delicious for those who like their saki woodsy.
