Has that snake got his eye on your sake?
The blue and white 'snake eye' design is a traditional feature of sake tasting cups and has been used since ancient times.
When you taste sake at the brewery, these cups known as 'ochoko' are usually ceramic but this modern version is glass and specially shaped to ensure you can appreciate both the aroma and taste of rice wine.
Japanese sake can be difficult to find in the UK but don't worry, this stylish glass will make a great way to enjoy other short drinks, such as whisky, liqueurs or dessert wines.
Capacity: approx. 170ml (6 fl oz)
