While already a favorite of many bar miyako patrons, I’d like to re-highlight the Drumshambo Gunpowder Irish Gin, a delightful craft gin infused with Gunpowder green tea from China. The tea gets its name from the shape of the leaves, which are rolled into individual pellets for better preservation, and is what gives the gin its unique flavor. It’s great with tonic, water, or as a hot gin toddy, so please stop by if your interest is piqued!
As an aside, the bottle is adorned with the mythical jackalope, a cross between a jackrabbit and antelope, said to mainly inhabit North America. According to legend, it can imitate the human voice and is quite fierce, but it can also be caught by using whisky, its beverage of choice, to get it drunk.
This week, bar miyako is open as usual from 7pm to 1am on weekdays, but please note that it will be closed on Saturday, February 22. Apologies for any inconvenience, but thank you so much for your understanding. Hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
Introducing some rare spirits inspired by the mythical jackalope. The jackalope is a creature described as being a rabbit with horns – a cross between a jackrabbit and antelope – and is said to mainly inhabit North America, though it is also known in Scandinavia as the harahorn. According to legend, it can imitate the human voice, and can be caught by using whisky, its beverage of choice, to get it drunk.
At bar miyako, we have two gins and one vodka (though surprisingly no whisky) sporting a jackalope on the label. Photo left is Drumshambo Gunpowder Irish Gin, infused with Gunpowder green tea from China. Photo center is Harahorn Gin from Norway, a fresh, clean and fruity gin made with Nordic juniper berries, blueberries, rhubarb and other botanicals. Photo right is Born and Bred Vodka from the US, made from Idaho potatoes. (Film buffs may recognize the brand as the one created by actor Channing Tatum. )
All three spirits are great on the rocks or with tonic, so please stop by if you’re interested in a taste! bar miyako is open as usual this week from 7pm to 1am on Monday to Friday, and from 7pm to midnight on Saturday. I hope to see you all again soon!
