Chirori are sake pitchers made from tin that are used for preparing and serving "atsukan" warm sake. At BECOS, we curate a collection of high-end chirori from Osaka Suzuki, one of the leading makers of tin products in Japan. Each piece is hand-crafted by a tinworking specialist, and the chirori are exceptionally stylish while also effective at mellowing the flavor of sake warmed in them.

At BECOS, our concierges are well versed in etiquette and gift selection. There are many factors to consider when choosing a gift, including not only what to give, but also the budget, when to give it, and etiquette (especially if giving a gift to a Japanese acquaintance). Even if you just need a quick suggestion for the best item to give someone, our concierge service is ready to help.
Chirori are highly recommended for those who enjoy drinking warm sake. As tin has the effect of mellowing the flavor of sake by removing off-tastes, chirori made from tin can make almost any type of sake taste better. To use the chirori, pour in your sake and place the pitcher directly into hot water to warm your sake to the desired temperature. The sake can then be poured directly from the chirori into your sake cup.
