House of Suntory’s Haku Vodka, Toki Whisky, Roku Gin and Hibiki take center stage for a selection of cocktails including the Kokoro; using Haku Vodka and Sakura Vermouth with a unique blend of cold brew hibiscus flower, jasmine kombucha and verjus for a floral yet dry tipple and the Toki with a punchy blend of ginger ale, finessed with a gold shimmer.

SAVE WATER, DRINK CHAMPAGNE
Until March 2024, Nobu Bar at Nobu Hotel London Portman Square will also be introducing the ultimate collaboration with Porte Noire. Founded by Actor and Musician, Idris Elba, alongside Frenchman and Oenophile David Farber, Porte Noire was born out of a shared passion for wine and is now available exclusively to try in London at Nobu Bar.
Inviting guests to drink Champagne while making a difference, Nobu Bar will be donating proceeds to The Water Project with every glass of Porte Noire Champagne drank. A charity chosen by Idris Elba, The Water Project is a non-profit organization with a mission to unlock human potential by providing reliable water projects to communities in sub-Saharan Africa who suffer from a lack of access to clean water and sanitation.
From the vineyards of the Sanger school in Grand Cru Avize, Porte Noire Champagne is an exceptional and original expression of a perfectly matured chardonnay. The Sanger school has an interesting history, dating back to the first world war and keeping the art of champagne making alive after the war desecrated France’s vineyards. Champagne created here today is of the highest quality, made with a refined skill that has been passed down through generations.
Porte Noire is £30 per glass or £180 per bottle and available at Nobu Bar until March 2024.

This October, Nobu Bar at Nobu Hotel London Portman Square will also be celebrating London Cocktail Week, 12th - 22nd October. For the ten-day period, guests of Nobu Bar will be able to enjoy three bespoke cocktails in partnership with the sustainable beverage brand Discarded.
