bar miyako now has a new addition to the hugely popular Monkey 47 family!
Monkey 47 Barrel Cut is made by maturing the complex 47-botanical gin for six months in lightly toasted mulberry wood casks. The result is smoky, spicy, dry and delectable gin! Please stop by for a taste if your interest is piqued.
This week, we’re open as usual from 7pm to 1am on weekdays and from 7pm to midnight on Saturdays, so we hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
This week’s feature is on Siegfried Rheinland Dry Gin and it’s unbelievably alcohol-free sister, Siegfried Wonderleaf, from Germany. (Yes, alcohol-free gin exists!)
Those familiar with German literature may know Siegfried from the epic German Nibelung poem. After slaying a dragon, Siegfried bathes in its blood and becomes invulnerable except for a single spot on his back where a leaf from a linden tree had stuck, a spot which eventually leads to his downfall.
Like in the poem, linden also plays a significant role in Siegfried Rheinland dry gin, which uses linden blooms as one of the 18 botanicals that make it a wondrously complex and rich gin.
In addition to the Rheinland dry, which many of you already no doubt love, we have gotten our hands on Wonderleaf, the new non-alcoholic version of the gin, which has yet to make its way to Japan.
Technically, it’s not a gin given it’s lack of the required alcohol level of 37.5%, but it is carefully crafted with the same 18 botanicals and is a truly unique drink in and of itself.
Finally a gin and tonic for those of you who don’t drink! We have just this one bottle, so if this is the drink for you, please come in while supplies last!
This week, we’re open as usual except on Thursday, March 21 (a national holiday) so hope to see you all back at the bar!
