KI NO BI - Kyoto Dry Gin - Japan - 45.7% abv - 50clRegular price €9.50
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.
A fresh aroma of yuzu, and a thread of sansho that lingers like a morning mist in a bamboo forest. The juniper complements and showcases the Japanese botanicals. Ginger root gives a slightly warming, spicy finish.
