Pursuing the confluence of sake and sake cups, we create a new sense of value
aimed at those who want to enjoy sake deliciously.
We will design a relationship between sake and sake cups
in order to fully savor new ways of drinking sake,
using cups, entertaining, and having fun, all the way down to the last drop.
IKKON‘s name comes from the Japanese word ikkon, meaning to have
or treat someone to a cup of sake.
OHAKO is a sake cup that utilizes the dual-layered structure of the
“double firing” technique that is characteristic of Ōborisōma ware,
which has 350 years of history. OHAKO was born alongside
the implementation of double firing without openings, a development upon
the traditional technique, providing new ways to drink sake, use cups,
entertain, and have fun. When you say, “Let‘s have a drink,” we will provide
a deep and easy way to enjoy sake.
DOUBLE WALL SAKE CUP
The curves of the interior layer come in 3 shapes that pull out flavors and
fragrances, allowing you to enjoy the differing tastes of each.
On the outside is a marking of the interior’s form which lets you visually
understand the inside shape.
You will surely be able to fully savor the taste of sake by trying it
in each of the DOUBLE WALL SAKE CUP, or larger-size sake cup.
With a shallow round shape, you can sense the fruitiness and gentle roundness. While feeling the piquant bitterness and astringency, the volume of the umami spreads along with the aroma, and you can savor the taste smoothly.
As this shape narrows toward the bottom, the feel of the flavor changes between the beginning and the middle. After the lingering fruitiness, sweetness and umami spread, bitterness, astringency and the flavor of grains rise up.
With a linear shape, the sake enters your mouth directly and you can properly sense the 5 tastes (sweetness, spiciness, sourness, bitterness and saltiness). You are able to properly and thoroughly savor the complex flavors.
DOUBLE WALL SAKE CUP SET
the DOUBLE WALL SAKE CUP SET
The DOUBLE WALL SAKE CUP SET includes 3 types of larger-size sake cups
which come in a wooden box. Upon opening the box,
you will find an explanatory sheet detailing their shapes and characteristics.
The box cover can be used as a tray. Taking the cover off, it is very
convenient to store as it is structured to stack.
- 1. Box in hand, place it on a desk.
- 2. Slowly open it and place the cups on the tray.
- 3. Turn the markings away from you and guess the shapes of the interior.
This is another way to enjoy the set.
of sake and sake cups,
as told by the pros.
Asking pros, experts of enjoyment, and people from abroad,
we will pursue a new ikkon style of sake and sake cups
through interviews and columns.
Let’s search for new ways to enjoy sake together with IKKON.
