Rogerio Igarashi

Originally from Sao Paulo, Rogerio has been mixing up Brazilian influenced drinks in Toyko for over 15 years.

Now at Bar Trench, a tiny space with only 13 seats, Rogerio focuses on craft cocktails. The menu changes four times a year so that the local and international crowd always have something new to try.

"To celebrate 200 years of Heering Cherry I would like to share a cocktail with everyone. Japan and Heering have a long relationship. It was one of the first products to be imported by Suntory in 1899. Since then it has been in the most important bars in Japan.

The Rum Hunter cocktail originates from the classic Hunter cocktail which is popular in Japanese bars.

Originally The Hunter is a bourbon base cocktail. I decided to use a bourbon matured Rum with bitters which give a more fruity flavour, together with Heering, and is perfect for the spring and the cherry blossom season in Japan.
