Fresh Yuzu Gin Drinks

The mighty yuzu is here for good.

Our adventures in gin making (and drinking) have led us to discover some pretty tasty botanicals over the years. And thanks to our travels to Japan and a few collabs with Japanese chefs and distillers, we’ve dabbled with one particular citrus enough times to know it makes a kickass gin (hello Pure Kisumé Gin, Changing Seasons Gin and Rarer Dry Gin). So, we decided it was time to make things official and take it up a notch. Fresh Yuzu Gin is here and it’s here for good.

Yuzu brings a mix of lemon, mandarin, cumquat and grapefruit aromatics to the fore (i.e. citrus galore). So for this gin, we added botanicals like ginger, turmeric and Japanese green tea with roasted brown rice to bring in the depth of flavour. It’s bright, it’s fresh, and damn does it makes some good yuzu cocktails.

So without further ado, we present to you four delicious yuzu gin cocktails to make with your Fresh Yuzu Gin.
