Country of origin: Japan Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 40% Bottle size: 500 ml
Made with Sakurajima komikan (Japanese mandarin orange), juniper berries and various other botanicals.
A new Japanese craft gin with the subtle, delicate fragrance of citrus. This botanical gin hails from Kagoshima, Japan, home to both the Komasa Gin Distillery and a tiny type of local mandarin orange called the Sakurajima komikan.
Sakurajima is the name of an active volcano in Kagoshima and is where these oranges grow in its volcanic soils and reach sizes of about 4cm in diameter. Each ripe fruit is packed with a mellow fragrance and the thick, sweet taste of citrus.
Komasa Sakurajima Komikan Gin is crafted with generous amounts of these fragrant oranges, resulting in a bright, gentle spirit that truly shines with fresh notes of citrus.
About Sakurajima Komikan: The Sakurajima komikan is supposedly the smallest Japanese orange (mikan) in the world, with a diameter of 4 to 5 centimetres. They are local to Sakurajima, Kagoshima, and are known for their rich fragrance and sweetness. Compared to a regular orange or lemon, the flavour of the Sakurajima komikan is much more delicate and subtle. These tiny, unassuming mikan were the key in opening a new world for Japanese craft gin.
We suggest a Komikan Gin & Tonic (1:2 ratio).
If you desire a drier taste, cut the tonic and use soda only for a Komikan Gin Rickey.
Mix and match ratios to accommodate any mood or setting.
About Komasa Jyozo: Komasa Gin is the craft gin label proudly presented by Komasa Jyozo, a shochu distillery in Kagoshima, Japan with over 130 years of distilling history.
Gin and shochu both share the fact that they are distilled spirits. Drawing on decades of distilling expertise and know-how accumulated through making shochu, the distillery unveiled a new line of gins in 2018.
Komasa Jyozo uses their rice shochu as the base for Komasa Gin, to which they add juniper berries and as few other ingredients as possible in order to let the main botanicals shine on their own.
Komasa Jyozo’s goal is to utilize and express the natural fragrances and flavors of their quality ingredients to the fullest. With Komasa Gin, they hope they have hit upon a revolutionary style of gin that is eminently easy to drink and perfect for everyone.
