    Do you know that tin cup makes sake delicious?
    Tin has high ionization effect, antibacterial effect, and keeping freshness. It is said that “the water in a tin ware does not rot,” or “a tin ware softens the taste of sake.” Therefore, people have used tin as a sake set or tea cup.
    Scientifically, the relationship between tin and fusel oil is the secret of how to soften the taste of sake. The fusel oil is a volatile component which is generated during the brewing of alcohol. It is said that the fusel oil is especially contained in Japanese sake and wine.
    Actually, the tin has an effect to dissolve the fusel oil. So the taste becomes mild by the tin especially when the sake is dry.
