Inspired by the lifestyle of bartenders, and what is for us a standard – moon – so the name is derived from a shinto god of moon. Sleeping during the day, working nights, moon is our friend and follower. I created a futuristic twist on an improved genever cocktail to portray the refreshing nights after a good shift at work. This deep tasting twist emphasizes the maltiness and citrusy freshness of Genever 21 through refreshing notes of lemongrass, with nocturnal tones of prunes and pomegranates.
