Ginkgo is described as a "true taste of Japan" because, unusually, it is produced from a selection of single malts from a number of Japan's distilleries.

Blended by Ichiro Akuto, formerly of Hanyu Distillery, and launched in Japan under the name Chrysanthemum, Ginkgo is a limited edition release of 1,000 12-bottle cases annually, 50 per cent of which will remain in the domestic market and 50 per cent distributed internationally under Number One Drinks Company.

Ginkgo is described as having a complex nose and spicy palate that makes a well-balanced, light and fresh aperitif or accompaniment to Japanese and other Asian foods.

Bottled cocktails: The dos and don'ts

Pre-made cocktails have always carried a stigma, which I find odd. The romance of watching bartenders make drinks from scratch left pre-batched cocktails feeling cheap to many consumers, but lockdowns have forced this attitude to change.
