The shape itself says "soy sauce" in no uncertain way. Even outside Japan where people don't know that it was as much the soy sauce bottle as it was the actual taste that made soy sauce brand Kikkoman a household name in Japan. But what the Soy Sauce Cruet does with the bottle is certainly worth the "The" in its name: from the crystal glass material to the fitting of the cap that allows you to control better the flow, this is the best soy sauce bottle you could ever own!
Made by the Ishizuka Glass Group but with a tip of the hat to the Tsugaru Vidro glasswork technique from Aomori in northern Honshu, the Soy Sauce Cruet improves the classic design in the shape of the spout which doesn't feature a beak. It also boosts the capacity (this one is just 80 ml, or 2.7 fl oz, since even Japanese nowadays are more careful when it comes to their salt intake) and the size, making it a little smaller. Do you think these are not important? Try it and you'll see they are! This bottle is an instant classic, available with an optional traditional paulownia white wood box.
