Claire's Sweet Kiss

Hiro Sake, the hand-crafted sake from Japan, will proudly host and sponsor the opening night party for Broadway’s The Visit starring Chita Rivera. Carlos Arana, Hiro Sake Co-Founder and CEO, is a co-producer of The Visit, a musical that stars the two-time Tony winning legend, Chita Rivera. As guests enter the venue in New York City on the evening of April 23rd to toast this historical show, food will abound and the Hiro Sake cocktails will flow. But one cocktail will be worthy only of the musical’s leading lady and her chosen few… In honor of Ms. Rivera’s role as Claire, the world’s wealthiest woman, Hiro has created a luxurious cocktail befitting of her stature. The cocktail, dubbed Claire’s Sweet Kiss, will be made from a special distillation of Hiro based on a recipe from 1699. Hiro’s Toji or Sake Master separated a very small batch of Hiro according to this exacting recipe. This special sake will be flown to NY and used only for the Claire’s Sweet Kiss cocktail. This cocktail will be served only to Ms. Rivera and her guests on the evening of the opening night party.

When the world’s wealthiest woman returns home for the first time in decades, it’s the talk of the town. When that woman is portrayed by the legendary Chita Rivera, it’s Broadway history in the making. This spring, the sensational two-time Tony® winner joins Tony Award® winner Roger Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) in a stunning tale of young love, timeless seduction, and sweet revenge. Sure to become the season’s most delicious musical sensation, THE VISIT marks the historic final collaboration between the creators of the Tony award-winning masterwork Kiss of the Spider Woman. John Kander and Fred Ebb, the Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning songwriters behind some of the most iconic musicals of the past 50 years, including Chicago and Cabaret, collaborate once more with four-time Tony Award winner Terence McNally (Master Class, Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman). This incredible triumvirate, joined by celebrated choreographer Graciela Daniele (Ragtime, The Rink) and director John Doyle, the Tony Award-winning visionary behind the revivals of Sweeney Todd and Company, now brings THE VISIT to Broadway.

Hiro Sake is a world class, hand crafted Japanese sake, created using only the finest ingredients at the Brewery Taiyo Shuzo, established in 1635 in the Niigata Prefecture. This Brewery was featured as one of the finest craft sake breweries in Japan in the December 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast. Hiro offers both a Junmai (Hiro Red) sake and a Junmai Ginjo (Hiro Blue) sake which is produced with rice that is ‘polished’ or milled to remove at least 45% of its original weight and has added character and body. Both may be served chilled, on the rocks or in a cocktail with Hiro Red the preferred choice for those wanting to enjoy a hot sake. Hiro Sake can be used in an infinite number of cocktails, usually standing in for vodka, rum or gin and with only half the alcohol of traditional spirits. Hiro Sake is only 39 calories/ounce, additive- and preservative-free, gluten-free (made with rice), histamine- and allergen-free (no allergic reactions) and has 1/3 the acidity of wine (making it easier on the stomach). Hiro Red suggested retail price is $29.99/$15.99. Hiro Blue suggested retail price is $39.99/$19.99. Both are 15% alcohol by volume.


Hiro Sake is premium Japanese sake brewed in the Niigata Prefecture, the premiere sake-producing region of Japan. Hiro is offered in both Junmai (Hiro Red) sake and Junmai Ginjo (Hiro Blue) sake. It is imported to the U.S. by Hiro Sake USA in Manhasset, NY. In 2011 Hiro’s Toji (Sake Master) was awarded first prize in a Japanese national sake competition, regarded as one of the most important sake competitions in the world.
