Dialing in the Lunar New Year with a sweet treat is always a good thing. To celebrate the year of the Rabbit, Nesuto has created the Longevity Yuzu Kumquat Gateaux de Voyage cake – a golden citrus pleasure cake-flavoured with yuzu, one of the six Japanese botanicals used to make Roku Gin.
Roku Gin uses six different Japanese botanicals, including hand-harvested yuzu from Japan’s mountainous regions. Roku Gin’s signature citrus flavour comes from yuzu, of which the fragrant peel and juice are highly prized in Japanese culture, much like the Chinese Mandarin.
For the Roku Gin x Nesuto Longevity Yuzu Kumquat Gateaux de Voyage cake, you will find layers upon layers of yuzu kumquat compote infusing a tender yuzu vanilla pound cake with the sweet aroma of the seasonal Japanese fruit. The cake is great on its own or paired with a Roku Gin cocktail. It’s rich and buttery yet also zesty and snappy with overtones of citrus without the alcohol tones.
You can get the cake as a set this Lunar New Year. Priced at S$78 (inclusive of shipping fee), the set includes one Longevity Yuzu Kumquat Gateaux de Voyage cake, one bottle of Roku Gin (200ml), a wooden coaster, balloon glass and ceramic cup. This already includes shipping fee. Make your purchase at Nesuto Singapore or online at their website here.
