Sake is Japanese national alcoholic beverage brewed from rice, and can be enjoyed in a variety of different vessels. These glass Sake cups (guinomi or ochoko) are small because it is Japanese etiquette to keep pouring each other Sake. You can pair these cups with a matching server (tokkuri) or mix and match with other servers and cups. Some restaurants will offer a selection of Sake cups for customers to choose themselves.
Tebineri is actually the name of the technique to make the twists & warps in the glass by hand and this series from Aderia Glass reflects the warmth and uniqueness of such hand made products. These sake cups are thick and therefore durable. Aderia Glass is one of the leading glass manufacturers in the Japanese foodservice industry.
