KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin (700 ml)
Country of origin: Japan Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 45.7% Bottle size: 700ml
The first Japanese gin made in Kyoto.
KI NO BI (‘The Beauty of the Seasons’) is inspired by tradition and is distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto. This gin is made in a recognisable dry style but with a distinct Japanese accent.
KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin is created with Japanese botanicals such as yellow yuzu from the north of Kyoto Prefecture, hinoki wood chips (Japanese cypress), bamboo, gyokuro tea from the Uji region and green sanshō (Japanese peppercorn) berries.
Bottled at 45.7% ABV, KI NO BI uses a rice spirit base and peerless water sourced in the famous sake–brewing district, Fushimi.
Botanicals: Juniper berry, Orris, Hinoki, Yuzu, Lemon, Green tea (Gyokuro), Ginger, Red Shiso leaves, Bamboo leaves, Sansho pepper, Kinome
Mastering not only the science of distillation as others have done before, but also the age-old art of blending, we separate the botanicals in our gin into six different categories: Base, Citrus, Tea, Herbal, Spice and Floral and distil each category individually. Then we blend them in perfect balance and create the distinct KI NO BI flavour.
- A fresh aroma of yuzu, plus a thread of sansho that lingers
- The juniper complements and showcases the Japanese botanicals
- Ginger root gives a slightly warming, spicy finish
Serving suggestions: Lovely in a G&T or in gin cocktails that will benefit from the 45.6% strength.
