About this deal

Scottish made Jinzu is just one example of the blooming tipple. Designed by bartender Dee Davies for Diageo’s Show Your Spirit competition in 2013, this gin includes cherry blossom, yuzu and sake to create a twist on the classic juniper flavour. Japan has been riding high in popularity (and influence) across the food and drinks industry for the past 18 months, with Matcha and Yuzu having already swept the globe,” Olivier Ward, Editor and Co-Founder of Gin Foundry told Good Housekeeping. “Cherry blossom, and other ingredients are now surfacing more often, especially in gin, as drinkers dig deeper into the country and cuisine’s rich heritage and diverse flavour pairings. Combine this with an unquenchable thirst for pink drinks in the UK and it’s easy to see what there's such a phenomenal interest around products with it in."

The LIVE virtual tastings are carried out in the last week of the month. Please keep an eye on our socials for confirmed dates! In a bid to tap into the gin craze that shows no signs of slowing down, the trend for Japanese-inspired versions of the spirit has been sweeping the UK. Made with a variety of exotic ingredients, these gins contain one distinctly Japanese element that makes them perfect for spring. The key botanical is cherry blossom, the symbolic flower that is celebrated at festivals around Japan each spring. If you’re looking to toast the arrival of the warmer weather, this twist on a classic could be the drink for you.
