bar miyako and makino gin



今週の #barmiyako は平日の19時〜25時、9月2日(土)は19時〜24時まで元気に営業しております。皆様のお越しをこころよりお待ち申し上げております!

We now have an interesting new gin from Kochi Prefecture, Makino Gin, named after the Kochi-born Japanese botanist Tomitaro Makino.

The gin is made using botanicals such as Sueko-zasa (sasaella ramosa), a type of bamboo leaf discovered by Makino and named after his beloved wife, Kochi-grown guava leaves, citrus and herbs. The botanicals are seeped in shochu brewed by the Tsukasabotan brewery, Kochi’s oldest brewery said to have been the favorite of Japanese samurai/hero Ryoma Sakamoto, which is then distilled to create the citrusy and woody gin. Please stop by if your interest is piqued!

This week, #barmiyako is open from 7pm to 1am on weekdays, and from 7pm to 12am on Saturday, September 2. Hope to see you all back at the bar soon!

bar miyako and nikka coffey and suntory ROKU gin



サントリーの「ROKU(六)ジン」は桜や柚子、玉露が香るバランスのとれたスムーズなジンですが、今週ご紹介する理由がもう一つ!なんと、8月に #barmiyako は6周年を迎えます!周年についての詳細は追ってお伝えしたいと思いますが、取り急ぎ、「ROKU(六)」という数字の宣伝です(笑)


With gin gaining popularity worldwide, Japan has also been busy crafting its own unique gins infused with local ingredients from its 47 prefectures. We’ve been trying to keep up with this exciting trend by increasing our Made in Japan gins, but this week, we’re focus on two major brands.

Nikka Coffey Gin, made in Coffey stills, is a sansho-infused spicy delight. Suntory’s ROKU is a lovely balanced gin with notes of cherry blossoms, yuzu and gyokuro tea, but there’s another reason why we’re featuring Roku this week.

ROKU, in Japanese means six. And six, is the number of years that bar miyako has been in existence! While we’ll update you more on our anniversary celebrations next week, this is just a head’s up that we’re celebrating our sixth anniversary in August, so please stay tuned!

This week, we’re open from 7pm to 1am on weekdays, and from 7pm to 12am on Saturday, August 5, so hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
