KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin

RM408.0

KI NO BI (translating as ‘The Beauty of the Seasons’) is inspired by tradition and is distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto. Our Award-Winning gin is made in a recognisably 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 pure ground water sourced from the famous sake-brewing district of Fushimi.
Mastering not only the science of distillation as others have done before, but also the age-old art of blending, we separate the botanicals in our gin into 6 Elements: Base, Citrus, Tea, Herbal, Spice and Fruity & Floral, and distil each category individually. Then we blend them in perfect harmony to create the distinctive KI NO BI flavour.
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.
A fresh aroma of yuzu, and a thread of sansho pepper 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.

Description

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.
