Gin 'Ki No Bi Edition K - Kilchoman Cask Aged'

Gin Ki No Bi Edition K  Kilchoman Cask Aged Kyoto Distillery
  • Limited-edition cask-aged dry gin produced by The Kyoto Distillery in Kyoto, Japan
  • Distilled using rice spirit and locally sourced Japanese botanicals
  • 11 botanicals include juniper, yellow yuzu, akamatsu (Japanese red pine), red shiso leaves, bamboo leaves, ginger, lemon, orris root, gyokuro tea from the Uji region, green sanshō peppercorn, and kinome (peppercorn tree leaves)
  • Botanicals are divided into six distilling groups based on flavor and aroma: Base, Citrus, Herbal, Spice, Green Tea, and Fruity & Floral
  • Each group is distilled separately before blending; the blend is left to marry in stainless steel before bottling
  • Aged nearly 1 year in ex-bourbon barrels that previously held Kilchoman Islay Single Malt Scotch
  • Proofed with water sourced from the Fushimi region, known for its delicate brewing water
  • Bitter orange, petrichor, delicate pine, and savory smoke on the nose transitions to a palate of salted lemon peel and smoked juniper with bright minerality and a delicate green tea bitterness
  • Limited US release of 600 bottles
  • Non-chill filtered; 46% ABV

KI NO BI Edition K is the result of a unique collaboration with independent Islay Scotch whisky distiller Kilchoman. Kyoto Distillery’s KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin is aged just shy of a year in ex-bourbon barrels previously used to mature Kilchoman’s peated malt. The result is an incredibly well-integrated, barrel-aged gin that harmoniously marries all the stone fruit and peat smoke of Kilchoman whisky with KI NO BI’s citrus- and spice-driven botanical profile.
