About the Product
The "Kurashiki Wood Tumbler hi" is a tumbler for whiskey and soda made of Quercus crispula from Hokkaido, which is also used as a material for aging barrels of Japanese whiskey.
Quercus crispula is also known as "Japanese Oak" and is very popular worldwide as a furniture material.
Kagu-no-Hirayama, which has a 75-year history as a furniture workshop, has used its expert skills to process each piece by hand to create a high quality tumbler.
Unlike glass, this tumbler has high strength and insulation properties, making it suitable for use at home, outdoors, and in a variety of other settings. In addition, since the coating is only applied on the inside to ensure water resistance, you can enjoy the change in color caused by the oil content unique to Quercus crispula on the outside. The tumber can be used for a long time without maintenance, but by maintaining it with beeswax, the texture of the wood will be revived and the color will become your own.

About the Maker
Kagu-no-Hirayama has a 75-year history as a furniture workshop. We have been making furniture with the desire that our carefully crafted fine furniture will be used for a long time. We also believe that the long use of a single piece of furniture through repairs and refurbishments will lead to a sustainable society.
This product is the result of our efforts to create new objects that enrich people's lives based on the skills we have cultivated through furniture making. Tumblers carved from wood cannot be mass-produced by machine. They are a gem of our craftsmanship, carved out with our expert skills.
The craftsman who invented this product himself loves wood and alcohol. We would be happy if people who love sake could enjoy the unique qualities of wood with us.
