Thursday 7 June - Sunday 10 June 2018
A BRAND NEW limited edition Tanqueray gin recipe, launched in late May is available to try in a range of cocktails in a stunning roof terrace at Aqua Kyoto.
This event is taking place as part of the World Gin Day LONDON festival (7 - 10 June). Access this event and cocktails for £6 in over 60 bars across the city by purchasing a digital pass for just £10.
In celebration of the new limited edition savoury gin from Tanqueray the Japanese restaurant Aqua Kyoto have unveiled their new summer terrace.
Complete with hanging foliage, a delicate floral display and a tranquil water feature, the aqua kyoto terrace provides a peaceful retreat from the bustling crowds below. Set yourself up in a colourful lounge chair and sip on some delicious Tanqueray Lovage cocktails, crafted by the expert aqua kyoto bar team. Aromatic and herbaceous, the savoury notes of the innovative gin are distinct throughout the bespoke new cocktail menu, perfect for a delicious drink on a hot summers’ day. The special serves are garnished with fresh herbs and plants, to enhance the botanicals in the gin.
Not just in the cocktails, lovage will feature on the menu within the restaurant too, with new dishes created for the restaurant. Executive Chef Paul Greening will grow a selection of rare and unusual Japanese herbs and vegetables never cultivated in the UK before. Four ‘farms’, all in the aqua kyoto kitchen, will produce completely organic, fresh herbs and plants that are otherwise difficult to source outside Japan. With no packaging or carbon footprint, the ingredients will see minimal wastage as Paul and his team can control the growing conditions and only harvest exactly what they need.
