About this deal

Lemon and corriander still shine through, while the orange flavours stand up to the addition of tonic water too. We redistill our shōchū with juniper, regional citrus, cherry blossom and native botanicals, always exercising restraint in the pursuit of clarity and perfection. In a bid to tap into the gin craze that shows no signs of slowing down, the trend for Japanese-inspired versions of the spirit has been sweeping the UK. The delicious sweet taste of cherry and blossom balanced perfectly with juniper, makes for an exciting and moreish pink gin. A trio of “world botanicals” gins has been added to the range as part of a “Hortus gin festival”, which also includes gin liqueurs and pre-mix gin and tonics in cans.

As Suntory explains, "the delicate scent of cherry blossom is drawn out through vacuum distillation in stainless pot stills, whereas the deep flavor of yuzu is achieved by distillation in copper pot stills. It continues to hit that balance on the palate, with lemon and orange joining the floral and mint notes. Located just 2 miles outside Alderley Edge on Turnock Farm, a part of the illustrious Capesthorne Hall Estate, we are both in the middle of nowhere yet a stone throw from everywhere. The Grocer’s New Own-Label Awards is the best way to get an independent read on how your new own-brand product stacks up against other retailers and suppliers. However, the spirits company Destilerias Company actually takes its cue from the Far East for this gin, adding typical Japanese botanicals such as dragon fruit, kumquats and ginger.A light and elegant pink grapefruit and elderflower gin cocktail could add a touch of class to any night. And for a traditional London Dry with a floral style, , a craft distiller from Leicestershire, has given its gin a pink twist with preserved cherry blossom, hibiscus, rose and pink grapefruit. If you’re looking to toast the arrival of the warmer weather, this twist on a classic could be the drink for you.

From the KURO EXPRESSIONS range - a unique range of premium gins made using KURO signature, award-winning gin with a deliciously fruity Japanese-inspired twist. This 20% abv liqueur is distilled in traditional copper stills and bottled in packaging featuring a similarly traditional design. Embracing the elegance of Japanese cherry blossom, this gin features its delicate and captivating flavours as the centrepiece.also allows the juniper to peek through, while also delivering pine, smoked meat, wood smoke, and intense lemon on the nose.
