Japanese name for a vessel for serving or pouring sake (Rice wine) with a spout (beak). It is made of various materials such as ceramic, glass or metal and molds. Katakuchi is mainly used for cold (unheated) sake. For warm sake Katakuchi is therefore not optimally suitable, because in the relatively large vessel too fast cooling takes place. Other pouring vessels are Chirori (made of tin or copper) and Tokkuri (made of glass or porcelain). Sake is drunk from different drinking vessels like Masu (Wood cube), Ochoko (Mug) and Sakazuki (Drinking cup). See also below wine vessels,
