The perfect sake cup for enjoying a glass of fruity sake! Although the metal material gives an inorganic impression, the rounded shape and soft curves create a gentle image. We are glad that it can also be used stylishly as a vessel for serving appetizers and snacks.

Tin with excellent properties as a drinking vessel

Tin is a material often used as a "sake cup" that can take full advantage of its properties. One of its advantages is its thermal conductivity. Its greatest feature is that it keeps hot food warm and cold food colder.

Tin also has an ionic effect, which helps to mellow the taste of water and sake by removing impurities. In addition, tin has excellent rust resistance and moisture proofing properties.

You can see why various types of tin drinking vessels are made, such as sake cups, cups for sake drinking, and tumblers.

Sake cups with a narrowed mouth are recommended for drinking sake to enjoy the aroma and flavor. It is perfect for enjoying sake with a meal or fruity sake with snacks.

Details of the gulping cup1

While a choko is a small capacity sake cup that can be consumed in a single sip, a gurinomi is a sake cup with a capacity that cannot be consumed in a single sip. Although it depends on the manufacturer and brand, as a rule of thumb, a sake cup with a capacity of 40 to 200 cc is called a gugunomi.

This goupinomi has a capacity of 105 ml, with a maximum diameter of about 6.3 cm and a height of about 5.4 cm. Not too large in size, it is perfect for when you want to enjoy your drink little by little. Because it is made of metal, it has a solid weight compared to glass or ceramics, making it highly stable.
