Suntory will follow up its success with previous special summer limited edition Pepsi cola drinks with Shiso Pepsi, based on the flavour of perilla leaves (shiso in Japanese), a favoured condiment to sashimi.

The new drink will hit convenience stores across Japan on 23 June and be available for a limited time.

Displaying the same green colour as the shiso leaf, which resembles a stinging nettle, the new drink will be sold in 490ml PET bottles at a price of JPY140 (US$1.44).

Also known as the Beefsteak plant, Shiso is closely related to the mint family, although its essential oils have the same intensity as fennel.

In the last two summers, Suntory introduced Cucumber Pepsi and Blue Hawaiian Pepsi.
