Putting a spring in its step

SPRINGTIME in Japan has been the inspiration behind the launch of three new liqueurs from gin brand Kokoro.

The liqueurs – Blueberry and Lemongrass, Yuzu and Ginger and Cherry Blossom – will be available from mid-March through distributor Mangrove and are said to be produced using authentic Japanese ingredients. All three have an ABV of 20%.

They are each being promoted with a signature cocktail serve.

The Blueberry and Lemongrass liqueur’s signature cocktail is the Afan Bramble, which also contains Kokoro Gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup; the Yuzu and Ginger liqueur is promoted with the Kokoro Collins, along with Kokoro Gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and soda water; and the Cherry Blossom liqueur is promoted in the Sakura 75 cocktail, with Kokoro Gin, lemon juice and Prosecco.

The Kokoro Gin liqueurs are priced at £11.50 for a 20cl bottle and £19 for 50cl.
