Tomato Tree
Gokan blends lacto-fermented tomato water with dill-infused gin. Elderflower cordial adds floral notes, while Greek gum tree sap adds subtle sweetness.

Chardonnay-Style Mizuwari
To honor the classic California oaky-buttery chardonnay, Gokan recreates the flavor and texture with Scotch, butter, pear and salt.

Whisky Nigiri
Like nigiri, the base is rice in the form of junmai daiginjo sake, with a dash of Japanese whisky. A splash of vinegar, freshly grated wasabi root and powdered soy sauce round it out.
