Even if you don't know that old-school izakaya (hole-in-the-wall restaurants) often serve shochu, a distilled drink made of barley, sweet potatoes, or a number of other ingredients, you can still appreciate the unique look of the Kameyama Barley Shochu on the Rocks Candle. And you certainly won't know it is an actual a candle until you get real close and see the wick - or the flame, if it's already lit. The detail the craftsmen of Kameyama have put into this item is amazing and certainly worthy of a company with a history of almost 100 years!
As visually striking as the reflection of the "ice" in the "shochu" or the cup itself, featuring the character for "barley" (mugi), are, what's even more amazing is that since it's only the inner part that burns, with time (it takes about 8 hours to burn completely), the Kameyama Barley Shochu on the Rocks Candle looks like somone has actually drank the shochu! A great gift for any fan of Japanese culture - or just Japanese booze!
