Gift Wrap: 


This sake set for two is modern in style with a large mouth decanter or "tokkuri" and two small sake cups called "ochoko" that are made of shiny porcelain in cobalt blue. The undulating circles that appear on the surface of both the cups and decanter gives this set a distinctive, simple elegance that is timeless.

Although sake is traditionally served warm, the wide variety and quality of sake that is available on the market today make it easier for the sake lover to find premium sake flavors that can be enjoyed both chilled and warm. Ginjo and other premium sake are usually best enjoyed slightly chilled, and Junmai which tends to be fuller in flavor and more acidic is tastes better when it is warmed. In Japan, sake is usually warmed slightly by placing a full flask in a hot pan of water for a few minutes. A quicker way is the microwave, but care must be taken not to overheat the sake as the entire flavor and alcohol content will evaporate if it is overheated.

There is etiquette to pouring sake for your partner, both for the pourer and the one who is receiving the pour. The charming act of this gesture begins with one person noticing that an ochoko is empty and lifting the sake flask up with both hands and offering a pour. The person receiving this offer will use both hands to hold their ochoko up, one hand holding the outside of the cup and placing the other hand underneath the cup as to support it. This ritual continues till the flask is empty and you begin all over again.

This distinctive sake set comes packaged in a gift box and is dishwasher safe. Made in Japan.
