Gin, 'Ki No Bi', The Kyoto Distillery
Kyoto Distillery is Japan’s first dedicated artisanal gin distillery. Located in the southern part of Kyoto, the distillery sources its water from the famed Fushimi region which is tremendously respected for its delicate and delicious brewing water. The distillery’s aim is simple: to produce the best dry gin, utilizing local botanicals whenever possible.
Located in the southern part of Kyoto city, the distillery shares its locale with sake producers that have been in business for hundreds of years. KI NO BI uses a rice spirit base and locally sourced botanicals that have been distilled and treated separately to capture the optimal amount of flavor from each ingredient. The botanicals include yellow yuzu from the north of Kyoto Prefecture, hinoki wood chips (Japanese cypress), red shiso leaves (a Japanese culinary herb), bamboo, gyokuro tea from the Uji region, and green sanshō (Japanese peppercorn) berries. Fushimi water, famed for its purity, reduces the gin to bottling strength. Enjoy! 45.7% ABV
