KI NO BI (“The Beauty of the Seasons”) is inspired by tradition and is distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto, made in a recognisably dry style, but with a distinct Japanese accent.

KI NO BI uses a rice spirit base and pure ground water sourced from the famous sake-brewing district of Fushimi and Japanese botanicals such as yellow yuzu from the north of Kyoto Prefecture, akamatsu wood chips (Japanese red pine), bamboo, gyokuro tea from the Uji region, and green sanshō (Japanese peppercorn) berries. 

Mastering not only the science of distillation as others have done before, but also the age-old art of blending, they separate the botanicals in their gin into 6 Elements: Base, Citrus, Tea, Herbal, Spice, and Fruity & Floral, and distil each category individually. Then blend them in perfect harmony to create the distinctive KI NO BI flavour.

Botanicals: Juniper, Orris Root, Akamatsu, Yuzu, Lemon, Sanshō Pepper, Kinome, Ginger, Gyokuro Green Tea, Red Shiso Leaf & Bamboo Leaf

Serving Suggestion: Enjoy with Fever-Tree Refreshingly Light Indian Tonic Water and a slice of lemon.
