Ki No Tea Kyoto Dry Gin
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. These teas are blended carefully with a secret botanical recipe used only in Ki No Tea.
Botanicals: Juniper, Orris, Hinoki Wood Chips (Japanese Cypress), Yuzu, Lemon, Gyokuro Tea and Tencha Tea.
A sweet and delicate bouquet on the nose. On the palate, a gentle sweetness like white chocolate spreads slowly, then a distinct juniper flavor comes to the fore. The finish is long and clean with roasted green tea scents.
Origin: Kyoto, Japan
