Product Code

The Gura kiln specialises in making traditional cups, jugs and accessories for drinking Sake and Shochu and are based in Gifu, Japan.

Guinomi (ぐい呑) are generally larger in size than o-choko with a heavier feel. The larger size of the guinomi impacts the flavour of the sake served.

A larger amount of sake can be held inside with more surface area and volume to release the sakes aroma. This helps capture aromatic components for longer before they are blown away by currents of air. Both of these qualities allow the taster to better appreciate the aromas in sake.

Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and are embraced.

General information & care instructions

Our tableware is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven) are likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your item. Always place very hot items onto either wood or cloth.
