Season's Beauty Gin & Tonic - Plum

We combined locally crafted gin 'Season's Beauty Kyoto Dry Gin' with homemade plum syrup made from plums harvested at Shusshoen garden. After savoring the full-flavored plum syrup-infused gin on the rocks, you can adjust the dilution to your liking by adding tonic water. This cocktail offers the added enjoyment of flavor transformation with the aroma of shiso and a touch of yukari-infused salt. Please note that this cocktail will be available as long as the homemade plum syrup lasts. [Price: 1,900 yen]

Kyoho Grape and Pear Mojito

Fruity cocktail made with the renowned 'Kyoho' grape, often called the 'King of Grapes,' and the representative autumn fruit, 'Pear.' Infused with Kyoho grapes and pears, the brandy 'Camus V.S.O.P. Elegance' brings forth a splendidly rich flavor, complemented by the refreshing touch of mint as an accent.

Overview of Kyoto Century Hotel

Around a 2-minute walk from JR and Kyoto Subway Station, the Kyoto Century Hotel was originally established in 1928 as the precursor 'Kyoto Station Hotel' as part of the celebrations for the Imperial Enthronement Ceremony (Gotaishiki). The hotel's iconic 'Kanjin no Kyotomirai' lantern serves as the centerpiece of a nostalgically modern space that has received numerous design awards. In April 2021, embracing the new concept of 'Nostalgic Journey,' the hotel continues to embody the spirit of longstanding hospitality while providing services that cater to the needs of the modern era. With this approach, we warmly welcome our guests.
