The Kyoto Distillery, Japan’s first dedicated artisanal gin distillery – is celebrating the award of its production licence by announcing details of its first release. KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin (‘The Beauty of the Seasons’) is inspired by tradition and is distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto. The gin is made in a recognisable dry style but with a distinct Japanese accent.
KI NO BI- a gin that speaks of its place of birth. As clear as the air in the sacred mountains of Kyoto. 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
