Ikigai is a Japanese concept which can be translated to “your sense of purpose” and “reason for being”.
The concept was born in Okinawa, Japan. This area houses the largest population in the world. Ikigai is what inspires you to get out of bed every day.
At Shop Ikigai, our ikigai is improving your ikigai! Our vocation is providing you with the opportunity to sip, savour and experience creative cocktails & embrace unique flavours. Enjoyed in moderation, alcohol can further enhance your ikigai.
Our carefully curated range of Japanese spirits, liqueurs, bitters (as well as our bespoke cocktail range, Kokoro Cocktails) embody the ikigai we foster.
Whether used as an ingredient in a cocktail/meal, or purely consumed as they are, our premium products endeavour to boost your ikigai.
To ikigai hunters and those who wish to embrace ikigai, we celebrate you with a Japanese toast: “Kanpai!”
Shop Ikigai is the ultimate shop for you, our friends who appreciate the finer things in life.
“Kokoro” is a Japanese word that cannot quite be translated to English. To have good “kokoro” is to have a good heart, intelligent mind and inherent kindness.
We have named our range “Kokoro Cocktails” so that your heart may be warmed, your mind eased and your body relaxed. All cocktails are original recipes created by us!
