In Japan, the season of cherry blossoms (sakura) is celebrated by gathering friends and family together and having a meal or drink underneath the blossoming trees.
To honour this tradition, we have created our special sakura feature menu, complete with sakura themed beverages, coursed menu, and dessert.

Kokuryu Junmai Ginjo
Fukui-based Kokuryu brewery has just arrived into Canada, with limited quantities! Using 55% local Gohyakumangoku (the second most popular sake rice in Japan), this junmai ginjo sake is rich in flavour while retaining a lightness in the mouth. A very pleasant surprise, considering that Fukui is famous for its soft water! Along with its complex notes of stone fruit and apple, this beautiful sake is fresh and elegant, yet dry on the finish.
