The East Imperial Gin Jubilee is back in Singapore for the finale for a week from 30 November till 8 December 2018. Singapore is the final stop of a five-city tour of the region with over 20 partner brands and 40 participating bars. It is time to go out there and enjoy Gin & Tonic. Featured here are two Gin & Tonics created with Japan’s Roku Gin.
Joash Conceicao at Jigger & Pony has created Hanakotoba with Roku Gin with Sakura Syrup, Chrysanthemum Tincture with Yuzu tonic and garnished with a cinnamon stick and Sakura flower. The syrup is created by brewing sweet Sakura tea with sugar and the tincture is from dried Chrysanthemum flowers sous vide with Roku gin to produce its floral flavour.
Shunkashuto is a refreshing tipple with citrus overtones and a lingering nutty finish. It is concocted with Roku Gin, spiced pear liquor infused with Regent tea blend, hazelnut liquor, East Imperial Burma tonic and garnished with rosemary and lemon peel. Enjoy a couple of glasses of this before moving not to something stronger. Shunkashuto is priced at S$23++.
