Made in a recognisable dry style with a distinct Japanese accent, KI NO BI (‘The Beauty of the Seasons’) Kyoto Dry Gin is inspired by tradition and distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto. The juniper complements and showcases the local Japanese botanicals, including gyokuru tea, yellow yuzu (citrus) and hinoki wood chips. A fresh aroma of yuzu gives way to a thread of sanshō pepper that lingers like a morning mist in a bamboo forest. Ginger root gives a slightly warming, spicy finish.
KI NO BI has not only mastered the science of distillation but also the age-old art of blending, by separating the botanicals in this gin into six different categories – base, citrus, tea, herbal, spice and floral – and distilling each category individually. Each is then blended in perfect balance to create the distinct KI NO BI flavour.
Bottled at 45.7% ABV, KI NO BI uses a rice spirit base and water sourced in the famous sake brewing district, Fushimi.
KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin was awarded one of the highest honours at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2018 – The Contemporary Gin Trophy plus a Gold Medal in the Gin and Tonic category – and was ICONS OF GIN’s Craft Distiller of the Year 2019.
