Six Top Bartenders Get Their Hands on Premium Japanese Gin & The Freshest Seasonal Ingredients. You’ll Never Guess What Happens Next!

Damn good cocktails, that’s what. 


Once again, Roku Gin honours the concept of ‘Shun’, a celebration of seasonal produce at its peak, by sending 6 of our best mixologists 1 special spring ingredient each to create exclusive cocktails with. This season, they are cherry, rhubarb, strawberry, sudachi, plum and avocado.



Goho, a trendy kaiseki & bar on Duxton, got creative with their given ingredient – rhubarb. It’s not exactly a familiar presence in cocktails, but here, its tart sweetness is harnessed well in the Rhubarb & Chamomile ($24), which used the floral tea and grapefruit oil to balance clarified rhubarb juice. We’re partial to the heady allure of the Rhubarb Gimlet ($24) made with Roku Gin, rhubarb juice, yuzu reduction and orange bitters.



At Live Twice, it’s strawberries galore. We started with the surprisingly not-too-sweet Ichigo Fizz ($28), even with the addition of honey ginger syrup. Easy and refreshing, with a subtle, but noticeable lift from that ginger. Order this first.

The in-a-coupe Spring Blossom ($28), we initially thought ‘too girly’, but sips later and we were sold on the strawberry and geranium syrup & foam. So easy. Still, the one that took the (strawberry) cake for us was Little Charm ($28), that’s made with a delicious strawberry shochu. 

Parched tip: don’t drink on empty, especially when the bar bites are this legit. Of course, the wagyu’s gonna be good, but wait ’til you try the tamago sando. Look how thicc.
