The secret’s out… after popular demand, Sydney siders can now sip on Saké Manly’s signature gin bowls at Saké The Rocks and Double Bay. After making a summer splash at Saké Manly’s launch, there’ll now be even more fun with the supercharged G&Ts being introduced across all Saké restaurants with new ingredients, botanicals and names.
Renowned for their inventive sushi and sashimi creations and imaginative cocktails, Saké never fails to push boundaries and deliver a unique dining experience which keeps people coming back for more. With a range of new G&T blends being launched, you can expect different gin styles and bespoke Australian tonics, showcasing a selection of out-of-the-ordinary botanicals. Picture yourself reaching out your hand and lightly clasping the voluminous, stemmed, Copa glass that enhances the beautiful fragrance, whilst being chilled over ice. Move over Blaire Waldorf, there’s a new Queen B in town.
This new range includes:
Tommy’s Haiku (below) available at The Rocks reminds us of pink, summer nights, and fuses Poor Toms Sydney Dry Gin with Artisan Violet Blossom, hibiscus and chamomile tea, mint, dehydrated strawberries and juniper berries.
Surprise yourself with a botanical burst and sip on Fruit of their Archery (below), also available at The Rocks, with a refreshing combination of Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin and yuzu sake with East Imperial Yuzu Tonic, rosebuds, purple shiso leaves, pink grapefruit zest and juniper berries.
From Japan with Love (below), available at Double Bay, showcases Japanese Roku gin alongside Fever-Tree Lemon Tonic, Yuho Junmai sake, fresh ginger, finger lime and sansho pepper.
Pam and Martin’s Daydream (below), also available at Double Bay, features Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin and Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic, and invites you to get lost and explore the unique flavour blend of mango, chilli and Jupiter berries.
And it just gets better… while you’re there, you can also enjoy their new “Favourites” lunch menu, available Monday to Thursday. Favourite dishes include Hiramasa Kingfish with jalapeno and lime koshu and coriander-infused ponzu, steamed prawn dumplings with spicy ponzu, miso-glazed Glacier 51 Toothfish, house salad, spicy tuna hand roll and green tea ice cream. All of this plus a glass of Riesling, Grenache, or draught beer will only cost you $60 per person, and is a deal not to miss!
So what are you waiting for? Come and see what everyone’s talking about and try one (or all four) of their famous, refreshing gin bowls!
