Chinese Sake Bottle

Once a year in January, when I go to Ise to visit my wife's home, I offer lunch to her 4 sisters, 3 brothers-in-law, and their kids. This is also the only time in year when I have Chinese sake in this attractive bottle. The sake is called Shokoshu, in Japanese. Someone likes to have it with sugar, but I prefer without. This way it tastes a bit bitter but gives me the full fragrance, which well matches the rich taste of Chinese food.
