Cocktail, it's an eternal challenge

A cocktail made by a bartender using a wide variety of spirits, liqueurs and fresh fruits. Not only the famous and historic classic cocktail called Standard, but now it continues to evolve all over the world and new cocktails are born every day. Chief bartender Michihiko Matsuba described it as "a world that never ends. Even though there is no goal, we can move forward and back. Still, while making it, we discover it every day." Even after 30 years of career, its charm is endless. Among them, Bar, K aims to "I want to convey the goodness of the standard, and I want to make an effort to express the taste of the creator." Mojito, who went to Cuba to think about recipes and won the Grand Prix in the contest, and Gimlet made from homemade cordial lime that was created 25 years ago. It's a classic, but it's a bit different. Born from an eternal challenge, there must be new discoveries in the pouring.

Smoky and mellow

10 times in Scotland. 5 degrees to Islay. In each case, the scene seen at the distillery standing facing the sea is burned. Whiskey produced in Scotland is called "Scotch whiskey" and is one of the five largest whiskeys in the world. "Islay Malt" made on Islay is characterized by the smoky scent of peat. What I felt there was that the sea breeze and the water used added a special flavor to the smoky taste. "It's grown in the ocean and aged in the ocean. It feels like Islay's taste." Is it mellow? Surrounded by beautiful nature, many of the islanders are engaged in the whiskey industry, and I have witnessed people working silently. Inspire the producers. We will deliver the tradition of the sacred place over the counter.
