Superbly Crafted Cup for Enhanced Sake Satisfaction

Magnify your enjoyment of the traditional Japanese beverage!

“Great for Japanese shochu and other spirits, too!”

The fruit of a collaboration with Kanazawa gold-leaf artisans, NOUSAKU create these outstanding pure tin Sake cups (with gold-leaf inside) in a choice of two attractive shapes.

Tip: Place in the refrigerator for a while before use.

NOUSAKU - Handed down and rooted in Takaoka.

With a history spanning some 400 years, NOUSAKU originally created traditional items such as Buddhist altar ornamentation, tea ceremony paraphernalia and vases. More recently, working in collaboration with specialist designers, the company has developed metal casting techniques to create genuinely unique, 100% pure tin interior items and tableware par excellence.

Considering the time and energy that goes into producing each high-quality piece, they are exceptionally good value. Considerably underpriced. Cliché though it is, Nousaku has thought 'outside the box', and has essentially reinvented tin. NOUSAKU products are innovative, arty and useful - a perfect combination for modern lifestyles.

Customer Reviews

  • Beautiful product!

    By S Jervis

    The products are lovely and did arrive in time for Christmas, however I was a little disappointed in the special gift wrap which turned out to be a brown plastic bag with a bow! There was also a long delay from the date of order until the shipping date, which would make me hesitate if ordering a gift in the future. From my experience most internet purchases turn around in a week or so rather than the 3-4 weeks in this case. That said, the quality of the goods is beautiful and personal contact I had with staff was pleasant, professional and timely.
