A life-long sake container which makes the sake becomes mellow. All containers are hand-made by craftesmen with hammers from a single copper plate.
■How the containers affect the taste of sake?
The bactericidal action of copper purifies the water in sake, which would eliminate the off-flavor of sake.
Especially for the dry sakes such as Special Junmai and Honjoz, the change in tastes would be even more significant.
As the name implies, all containers are man-made products by striking a single copper plate to corresponding shapes and the roughness of the surface is the proof of this technique. This know-how is so difficult that each craftsman needs 4-year experience to become a maker of the container. This traditional technology is developed by the living national treasure Mr. NorioTamagawa and Mr. Itami Shimakura.
