What an absolutely beautifully crafted whiskey glass!
Japan Nakama is a marketplace that sells Japanese-inspired and Japan-made products for anyone interested in Japan. Japanese Whiskey is such a treat, and what better way to accompany a modern-day craft than with a breathtakingly-crafted, crisp whiskey glass! Which also fits perfectly in your hand. This glass, The Hisame, has firmly become my favourite. It comes beautifully packaged in the original branded wooden casing and is bubble wrapped on the inside for extra protection. The added coaster is a lovely addition to the packaging. The Hisame Glasses are handmade using the Edo Kiriko craftsman technique that has been used for more than 2 Centuries. This particular glass is also designed to resemble the Ice Storms (Hisame “Ice Rain” in Japanese) of Northern Japan, which is beautifully done. The beauty of this glass is when your whiskey is poured, the dimpled surface gives it a lovely golden glow and the textured surface of the glass with a wide mouth allows for appreciation of the aroma as you sip the whiskey. This glass is priced at £27, a little on the expensive side but absolutely worth every penny. It would make the perfect gift for any whiskey lover and is a great addition to the drinks cabinet. Japan Nakama has a beautiful range of glasses ranging from £25 - £70. With so much choice on their website, you will be spoilt with options! Japan Nakama is moving to open up a UK-based warehouse for all their glasses and will be shipping domestically moving forward which means you’ll get your glasses much quicker.
