Style’s merry band of beverage reviewers sips some great new/celebrated drops.

Made in Japan

From Japanese whiskey masters Suntory, Roku craft gin utilises ingredients harvested from the best growing areas in Japan and is crafted by Japanese artisans with a centuriesold tradition of meticulous attention to detail. Expect a smooth, silky texture, a floral, sweet nose of cherry blossom and green tea, a complex palate of botanicals with yuzu as the top note and crisp sansho pepper ensuring a hint of heat to the finish.

Summer ready

The latest RTD release from MOA Brewing Co, HeyHey Vodka, Lemon, Lime, Bitters & Soda conjures up long and lazy Kiwi summer afternoons via Gisborne lemons and limes matched with Angostura bitters and vodka. This sweet, sour, juicy and refreshing classic in a can is perfect for popping in the chilly bin when heading to the park, beach or barbecue.

For Scotch buffs

Brand new single malt Lindores Abbey ‘MCDXCIV’ has arrived from the spiritual home of Scotch whisky, Lindores Abbey Distillery in the Kingdom of Fife, where the earliest known record of Scotch whisky hails. Founded in 2017, Lindores Abbey has its roots firmly in the past at a site dating back to 1494. Using locally grown barley, the whisky has a mellow vanilla, fruity, vibrant and buttery flavour with citrus touches and a hint of pepper from the wood. Matured in a combination of ex-STR wine barrique, ex-sherry and ex-bourbon barrels, this is a truly delicious fruity dram and perfect for any Scotch buff who loves a helping of history with their whisky.

New-gen Steiny

With an eye to changing consumer needs, iconic Kiwi brand Steinlager has launched its Ultra Low Carb beer just in time for summer – an easy-drinking, super refreshing lager that’s loyal to its Steiny flavour roots but is also 99 per cent carb free, contains just 88 calories per bottle and is brewed with no additives or preservatives.
