Spring’s Sprung in Sydney with Exclusive Gin Pop-up

Roku Gin partners with Tokyo Bird and KOI Dessert Bar to create an exclusive Sakura experience.

Igniting Sydney’s senses this Spring is a cultural experience from the House of Suntory. Presenting its premium craft gin, ‘Roku’ – the house has partnered with Toyko Bird and Reynold Poernomo’s KOI Dessert Bar to create the Roku Gin Sakura Pop Up for 12 nights throughout September and October.



Cherry blossom trees envelop the intimate space with tastebuds to be delighted by a bespoke cocktail menu crafted to highlight the aromatic nature of Roku Gin. The unique spirit is made from a collection of six botanicals, all of which are native to Japan including yuzu peel, sakura flower, sakura leaf, Sencha tea, gyokuro tea and sanshō pepper.

The sakura ingredients tie the relationship between Tokyo Bird, Koi and Suntory to solidify the concept of hanami, the cherry blossom viewing that the Japanese and tourists alike admire for the very few weeks of spring each year.



Aside from cocktails, there’s a hanami bento meal box put together Tokyo Bird and a Gin sakura dessert exclusively available for pop up guests going as far as to include the gin in the sweet.



The Roku Gin Pop-Up bar will take place through Thursday to Saturday nights, and ends on the 19 October 2019. To book tickets visit: http://www.tokyobird.com.au/event/roku-sakura-pop-up-bar/
