Japan has a reputation for creating highly-prized spirits, and Ki No Bi Japanese Craft Gin is no exception. Made in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan - a city with 10,000 shrines, and the cultural heart of Japanese craft, from sake to laquer, kimono-making to wood-block printing.
Ki No Bi means 'The Beauty of the Seasons' - a concept that is translated through these stunning gins, with each bottle distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto.
In Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry Gin, 11 selected botanicals are separated into six different 'elements': Base, Citrus, Tea, Herbal, Spice, and Fruity & Floral. Each element is then macerated in rice spirit before being individually distilled. Juniper, citrus and sherbet notes on the nose, with intense citrus, slight tea and brine notes and ginger spice on the palate, finishing with lingering spice and citrus notes.
Sei Kyoto Dry Gin is Ki No Bi's interpretation of a traditional British Navy-strength gin, made using the same intricated production method. With botanicals including juniper, orris, hinoki, yuzu, red shiso, sansho pepper and sansho leaves, the higher strength gives this gin a punchy palate while retaining Ki No Bi's flavour profile, making it a great cocktail gin.
The last to join the core range, Ki No Bi Tea was created in collaboration with tea-grower and blender Horii-Shichimeien, founded in the Meiji era in 1879 and based in the famous Uji region to the south of Kyoto city. The delicate, sweet notes of Ki No Bi Tea are on both the nose and the palate, with notes of white chocolate and juniper, leading to a long, clean finish of green tea.
