This Guchinomi, or Sake cup, is recommended for those who want to enjoy delicious sake every day.
This is one of the most popular Guchinomi because of its standard and calm shape. For fresh, cool, and smooth sake, an orthodox Guchinomi with no open mouth is perfect. In particular, this Guchinomi is surprisingly good with Souzake type sake such as ordinary sake, Honjozo sake, and Nama sake. The shape of this gugin is easy to match with other types of sake, so if you are looking for your first Nohsaku tin sake cup, this all-purpose gugin is recommended.
The Gold version is a gorgeous tin Guchinomi with gold leaf applied on the inside.
We have collaborated with Kanazawa's representative traditional craft, gold leaf.
The shine of the gold leaf enhances the sake even more. Because of its high thermal conductivity, the cup itself becomes hot, so use it for cold or lukewarm sake. Since 100% tin is too soft to be used by machines, each Guchinomi is finished by hand by a craftsman in Kanazawa, who applies the gold leaf one by one.
In both cases, the craftsmen finish each piece by hand.
