Different glassware has evolved in order to make each different drink better.

If you use the right and beautiful glass, you can not only enjoy the taste and aroma of Umeshu but also enjoy the Umeshu time visually.

For enjoying the relaxing time of drinking Umeshu better, let’s learn about how to select the best glass for different drinking types of Umeshu.

1.Why Use Different Types of Glassware?

Different glassware has evolved in order to make each different drink better. 

For example, the size of the mouth of glass can help release the aromas of liquor and liquor can be warmed-up, or stay cool, by the design of the glass.

Enhanced aromas and correct temperatures are two key factors to improving the drinking experience.

2.Recommend the best glass for different drinking types of Umeshu

In Japan, there are many liquor cups that are suitable for various types of liquor, including Japanese Sake. 

Umeshu doesn’t have a specific drinking vessel, but it can be drunk in either liquor vessel or glass, so choose the one that suits your taste and the method of drinking Umeshu.

  1. Japanese Sake Cup

  • Choko(Small Sake Cup)

Choko is the smallest sake cup.It is a vessel that can hold the amount of alcohol that can be drunk in one sip. 

It is said that you can enjoy the aroma of umeshu more in the type that gets wider from the bottom to the mouth than the type that has a tapered mouth. If you want to drink a little bit of Straight Umeshu,”Choko” is your best choice.

  • Guinomi(Large-sized Sake Cup)

A Guinomi cup is larger and a little deeper than Choko, but not as big as a rice bowl .

You can drink more using Guinomi than using Choko. But it is not as big as a glass, so it is also recommended when you want to drink straight and little by little.

  1. Rock Glass

The ‘Rock Glass’ is the most commonly used drinking vessel for Umeshu.

This glass is often used to drink whiskey and other Western liquors on the rocks, and many people who want to enjoy Umeshu on the rocks may choose a rocks glass with a wide mouth and a low height.

  1. Tumbler Glass

If you want to enjoy rock, or Umeshu mixed with soda or water, which is popular among women, we recommend the tumbler glass. 

This glass is taller than a rock glass and is used when drinking long cocktails.

Even when arranging cocktails such as mojitos and spumoni, using tumbler glasses can make you enjoy a wonderful Umeshu time.

  1. Wine Glass

When you mix Umeshu with soda and enjoy it as sparkling Umeshu, or when you mix it with wine , why not choose a “wine glass” as the vessel? 

The wine glass which has the delicate curves create a luxurious atmosphere.

Just looking at the transparent wine glass which poured amber-colored Umeshu, you can feel the fruity scent of plum spreading in your mouth.

So let’s choose the best glass for enjoying Umeshu time better!
