Our feature this week is on Blanton’s Bourbon, the “super premium” single barrel Kentucky bourbon.
In addition to the sweet and creamy flavor, Blanton’s is, as some of you may be well aware, the painkiller of choice for John Wick, the neo-noir action antihero played by Keanu Reeves. In the first film, you see John downing the standard Blanton’s and in the second film, he has the special reserve green label edition in Italy.
Additionally, each bottle comes with one of eight unique bottle stoppers featuring a horse and jockey in different strides and poses resembling the stages of a horse race. Eight in total, each stopper is also marked with a single letter that spells Blanton’s when the set is completed. How cool is that?
This week, #barmiyako is open from 7pm to 1am on weekdays and from 7pm to midnight on Saturday, June 10. We hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
今週は平日の19時〜25時までの営業となりますので、皆様のお越しを心よりお待ち申し上げております！（6月3日の土曜日は姉妹店の bar miyako living の営業日となります）
We have a rare new gin addition to the bar. YOSHI NAMA Little Tokyo Dry Gin from Germany was created out of love and respect for the Little Tokyo district of Dusseldorf and combines German manufacturing prowess with the “Japanese philosophy” that things that grow together can thrive together.
Using botanicals that grow side-by-side with juniper berries in Germany, such as lingonberry, sloe, saffran and gentian, the gin is refreshing and unique.
But most of all, it’s the bottle, with the gin’s mascot “tanuki” Yoshi, is what draws the eye. According to the manufacturer, Yoshi, like all tanukis, is curious, loves to hike and is up for any practical jokes (lol). Please come in if your interest is piqued.
This week we’re open on weekdays from 7pm to 1am so hope to see you all back at the bar soon! (We’re closed on Saturday, June 3, but bar miyako living next door will be open that day.)
