Cocktail tasting at Gen Yamamoto

leave a comment »

This is unlike any alcohol flight, the experience is closer to a sushi bar with 8 seats and a chef’s menu.

Slightly tart ume (plum) juice tart and sparkling sake with superfine cucumber dice

Tomato with sanshō pepper based gin, possibly Roku.

Unfiltered sake, edamame and milk

Finnish gin, Napue, peach and wasabi

Yamamoto whiskey on crushed ice and summer pomelo with a few pieces of unsweetened and candied sweet potato.

English Vodka, Black Cow brand made from milk, with green tea

Bar Gen Yamamoto, named after the mixologist, is in Azabu-Juban district. He designs the menu to reflect seasonality. Each cocktail has only a few ingredients.

Minimalist bar. Apparently, his bar top is made from two massive, thick slabs of 500-year-old mizunara oak, the same species which Suntory uses for the maturation of their whiskies, such as Hibiki and Yamazaki.
