A Rin crossing certified item.

A beer cup with a bit of luxury. Made through repeated attempts to finally create a cup that makes fine creamy foam!
Pour icy cold beer into the cup and it will taste better than before. Made with original clay that can create fine foam.
In a spatial design with pure silver leaf used in the overglaze and in a transparent, glossy, "Kutani 5 color" light green color.

Special-order 100% purity silver leaf foliated to a thinness of 2 microns (2 thousands of a millimeter) are attached one by one to each item, then it is put into a kiln and polished so that the fired silver leaf becomes smooth. On top of this, beautiful and transparent "Kutani 5 color glass glaze" is applied.
These Ginsai items require a great deal of effort and skill to make, such as putting in a kiln more than 4 times until they are complete. These are items with combined transparency and beautiful coloration that add extra quality to dishes and drinks.
The modest spatial beauty of the silver leaf thinness and cut surface are carefully created totally by the hands of craftsmen. As this is very delicate work, the thickness of each individual silver leaf varies slightly, meaning that a feature of Kutani Nagomigama's Ginsai items is that no two are ever the same.

This Kutani Nagomigama's beer cup retains superb foam for a long time. Not only does the beer taste delicious in this, but the foam too. The reason for this is the kiln's own originally blended Awaocho clay.
Also, the light body material, which feels good against the hand and is created one-by-one on a potter's wheel by the hands of an artisan, goes well with Kutani's beautiful colors.

[The secrets behind Awaocho clays deliciousness]
1. Fine foam created by Awaocho clay
It creates a fine, cream-like foam with a smooth texture and mild taste. By using original Awaocho clay, lots of foam is kept for a long time.
2. Delicious foam with a refreshing aftertaste
As the foam traps in deliciousness, there is less unpleasant bitterness, giving you a clean and crisp aftertaste.
3. With a sustained cooling effect
By cooling in the freezer and then using, this will bring you the characteristic wonderful cooling effects of ceramic.

●[Recommended pouring method for beer (Kutani Nagomigama Beer Cup Version)]
1. Pour bolding into a cup that has been pre-chilled in the freezer to make foam. Once the foam reaches halfway/two-thirds of the way,​ wait for approx. 25 seconds.
2. Once the foam has settled,​ pour gently into the center of the foam as if you were pouring into the hole of a straw. Even if you stray from the center,​ don't worry and continue pouring.
3. When the foam is just about to overflow,​ stop and it is finished. Enjoy the creamy foam and rich,​ crisp taste of the drink.
Enjoy drinking with others. People will be impressed at your pouring skills. Reward yourself after a hard day with a drink in this.
(By holding diagonally and pouring onto the side,​ you can make even more foam.)
Also,​ depending on the room temperature or beer temperature,​ the foam volume may differ. By changing to low-malt beer or other kinds of alcoholic drinks,​ the foam volume will also change a little.
