UK-based gin brand Kokoro Gin has added three new liqueurs to its product portfolio, all of which are inspired by flavours from Japan.
Three flavours will be available in the new Kokoro Gin Liqueurs range: Cherry blossom, blueberry and lemongrass, yuzu and ginger.
The launch of the three flavours celebrates the coming of spring in Japan, as well as the famous cherry blossom viewing season known as Hanami.
Each flavour features a different design on the bottle, which together forms a triptych of Mount Bandai in Japan.
The illustrations were painted by Koshu, a calligrapher who also painted the Kokoro Hirigana logo on the front of the bottle.
James Nicol, Kokoro Founder, said: “We’re delighted to be adding these exciting Japanese liqueurs to the Kokoro family. We’ve spent the last two years developing the range using authentic, natural Japanese ingredients.
“We’re proud that our family business is continuing to support the preservation of the forest in Japan where the sansho berries grow and which are at the heart of our gin.
“We will be giving 10% from the sale of every bottle of Kokoro Gin and the Kokoro Liqueurs to help preserve the forest which is close to my family’s heart.”
Kokoro Gin Liqueurs will be available from mid-March in the UK, with a suggested retail price of £11.50 for 20cl bottles and £19 for 50cl bottles.
