“THE EIGHT IMMORTALS”
LEGENDARY DEITIES AND THEIR POWERS WHO
INSPIRED JINJA’S SIGNATURE COCKTAILS
The eight immortals are a group of mythological heroes, believed to have a special connection with the secrets of nature, endowing them with physical and/or spiritual immortality.
Their stories and capabilities range from a beggar who wards off evil and heals the sick, to an intersex who wears only one shoe and communicates directly with the gods.
As a group, they represent prosperity and longevity, and the ability to overcome earthly hardships. Let us take you to the journey of the eight immortals crossing the sea, each showing their special talents traveling to attend a banquet held by the queen mother of the west.
It metaphorically means that everyone has their own ways and abilities to accomplish their goals.
