Golden Week is here! This week, bar miyako will be open as usual on Monday, May 1 and Tuesday, May 2, but closed from May 3-7, reopening on Monday, May 8. It’s going to be a very short week, but we hope to see you all back at the bar!
Pictured are two gins (Gunpowder and Harahorn) featuring the mythical jackalope on their label. 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 getting it drunk using whisky, its beverage of choice.
Drumshambo Gunpowder Irish Gin is infused with Gunpowder green tea from China, while Harahorn Gin from Norway, is a fresh, clean and fruity gin made with Nordic juniper berries, blueberries, rhubarb and other botanicals. Please stop by if your interest is piqued!
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!
