Newcastle! We are excited to announce our Styx Brewery X Nagisa Collaboration event.
Earlier this year we revealed our new exclusive Nagisa Gin and asked the community to help us name it. The winning name was “Amato” which was shortened from Amaterasu. This is Japanese for “heavenly rock cave” which is a story from Japanese Mythology.
We have also revealed that the image on the bottle was designed by local artist Ineke Higgins.
This event will be celebrated over 2 nights and served with a 5 course degustation with matching Cocktails and of course our Amato Gin.
Due to restrictions numbers will be strictly limited and this event is due to book out. To secure your table book online www.nagisa.com.au
