KI NO TEA Kyoto Dry Gin

RM516.00

SKU:
PRM090006

KI NO TEA is a product created in collaboration with tea-grower and blender Hori-Shichimeien, founded in the Meiji era in 1879 and based in the famous Uji region to the south of Kyoto city. A number of super-premium Uji teas have been specially selected to form the heart of KI NO TEA.

Tencha and gyokuro provide intense aromas and depth of flavour with a wonderful sweetness that occurs naturally in the distillation of these superior teas. We use leaves harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard, dating back to the 14th century, and blend carefully with a secret botanical recipe used only in KI NO TEA.
KI NO BI uses juniper, orris and hinoki as its base ingredients. These constitute our gin’s basic flavour structure, and account for more than half of the botanicals used. KI NO BI includes yuzu and lemon among its botanicals. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit, giving our gin a distinctive flavour when distilled. Sanshō pepper and kinome give KI NO BI an oriental and spicy aroma, which mainly features on the finish.
KI NO TEA, a sweet and delicate bouquet on the nose. On the palate, a gentle sweetness like white chocolate spreads slowly, then a distinct juniper flavour comes to the fore. The finish is long and clean with roasted green tea scents.
About The Brand

The Kyoto Distillery was established in Japan on 1st December 2014. The founding partners had been working together in Japanese whisky since 2006 with exclusive export rights to Hanyu, Chichibu and the now legendary Karuizawa. The Kyoto Distillery was granted a Spirits Production Licence on 8th August 2016; the first such licence ever granted in Kyoto Prefecture. The distillery released its flagship product KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin in Japan on 14th October 2016.

KI NO BI is a small-batch, artisanal gin with a very Japanese heart: it is made with the obsessive attention to detail, care and precision associated with the finest Japanese craftsmanship. We use a high-quality rice spirit and Japanese botanicals such as yuzu, lemon, sansho pepper, ginger and gyokuro tea, all sourced at the peak of the season from producers we know and respect.

We spent a lot of time perfecting our KI NO BI recipe, both to ensure absolute harmony between the various botanicals and to make sure that our gin speaks of its home in Kyoto. KI NO BI has a recognisably dry gin flavour but with a Japanese accent: pure, perfectly-balanced with distinctive aromas and a lingering finish of light ginger spice.
