  • Description
    This is an old (circa 1930’s) porcelain sake storage container.

    Japanese refer to this type of barrel as a “Taru” or “daru”.
    This container is a traditional shape where the porcelain mold mimics an even older style using straw ropes.
    The Japanese writing on the front is the name of the saki distillery with smaller characters indicating famous or high quality sake.

    This rice wine barrel dated back to Japanese occupation of Korea so late 19th century or early 20th century. It was acquired in Korea in mid 1970s. Likely either imported from Japan or there was a branch distillery set up in Korea.
