About this deal

It’s more metallic on the palate, with a steelier, drier mouthfeel, which made it the closest of the three to the traditional London dry style for me.

If you’re looking to toast the arrival of the warmer weather, this twist on a classic could be the drink for you.Kokoro Gin expertly infused with the Japanese flavour of sakura cherry blossom to produce the perfect gin liqueur.

Here we have a Japanese inspired gin produced in Barcelona and made with rice based spirit, from the same folks who brought you Akori Premium Gin. Located just 2 miles outside Alderley Edge on Turnock Farm, a part of the illustrious Capesthorne Hall Estate, we are both in the middle of nowhere yet a stone throw from everywhere. The Hortus gins being released tomorrow by Lidl add some exotic overseas touches to the range, as Peter Ranscombe finds out. Although it can be enjoyed neat, this spirit is best served with a slice of apple or even better, candied blossom, according to Davies.

This 20% abv liqueur is distilled in traditional copper stills and bottled in packaging featuring a similarly traditional design. The key botanical is cherry blossom, the symbolic flower that is celebrated at festivals around Japan each spring.

Florally from start to finish, this Gin has plenty of Cherry Blossom notes running throughout with burst of Rose and Pink Grapefruit playing their part with undertones of Juniper. Made with a variety of exotic ingredients, these gins contain one distinctly Japanese element that makes them perfect for spring.Once you have subscribed your subscription is active within immediate effect to take advantage of the exclusive offers, discounts and more.

To take the experience one step further, Suntory created a delicious cocktail that celebrates the complexity of both nature and Roku Gin.
