1. What is “The Ultimate Peat Glass”?
ーTrue original glass made from a new shapeー
Unlike original glasses that simply have the logo on an existing glass, this shape was arrived at after testing dozens of different glasses to see how the aroma and taste would be perceived. Since even the slightest difference in the shape of the glass can drastically change the aroma and taste, we pursued a shape that would convey the flavors of the “Mastering Peat” Saburomaru Distillery whisky in a straightforward manner.
ーOnly one artisan makes The Ultimate Peat Glassー
They are made with a commitment to handmade by craftsmen, with a desire to pass on Japan’s wonderful technology to future generations. The glasses are made by hand by glass artisans in Tokyo and sandblasted in Toyama Prefecture.
ーAttention to detailー
The glass has been tried and tested down to the smallest details, including the shape of the glass, the distance between the nose and the liquid surface and of course the flavour, the functionality of the glass, such as the length of the foot and the size of the base, as well as the texture and satisfaction when you pick it up and the beauty when it is displayed.
We hope you will enjoy drinking from these special glasses.

Lastly: Recommended Books on Japanese Whisky
If you want to learn more about Japanese whisky, which is a global trend, we highly recommend these books.
In the December 2021 issue of Whisky Galore, published by the Whisky Culture Research Institute, we report on 11 Japanese craft distilleries, including some that are open to the public for the first time, under the title of “Japanese Whisky Craft Frontline,” the first of three consecutive issues. Why did the popularity of Japanese whisky and the craft boom occur? We will examine with interviews. Chichibu Distillery / Chichibu No.2 Distillery / Mars Shinshu Distillery / Mars Tsunuki Distillery / Kanosuke Distillery / Hioki Distillery / Ontake Distillery / Osuzuyama Distillery / Kaikyo Distillery / Hanyu Distillery / Konosu Distillery
This is a book written by Mamoru Tsuchiya, a world-famous whisky critic and representative of the Whisky Culture Research Institute, titled “Japanese Whisky as a Culture that Works for Business” .
The book covers the basics of whisky, the introduction of whisky to Japan, the birth of Japanese whisky, advertising strategies and the rise of Japanese whisky, and the current rise of craft distilleries. This is a book that summarizes Japanese whisky in a very easy to understand way.
Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka Whisky, devoted his life to brewing whisky in Japan. This is a revised and reprinted version of the autobiography of a man who simply loved whisky and talked about himself. The book vividly depicts the days when he went to Scotland alone to study as a young man and overcame many hardships to complete Japanese whisky, as well as his companion, Rita.
Launching in 2019. With the world experiencing an unprecedented whisky boom, what were the managers of craft distilleries thinking and what were their thoughts as they took on the challenge of making whisky? This book tells the stories of 13 craft distillery owners, including Ichiro Hido of Venture Whisky, famous for his Ichirose Malt, who inspired the birth of craft distilleries in Japan.
(5). Whiskey Rising
This is the Japanese version of Whisky Risng, published in the US in 2016, with much updated content. Not only does it describe the history of Japanese whisky in detail, but it also includes data on all the distilleries in Japan, including the craft distilleries that have been founded in recent years. The book also includes descriptions of the legendary bottles that have been released, as well as information on bars where Japanese whisky can be found.
