The Kyoto Distillery

The Kyoto Distillery is without a doubt a gin that captures the spirit of Kyoto. With its complex mix of local botanicals, and its beautiful aesthetics, this gin makes for a perfect souvenir to bring back for you gin connoisseur friends!

The flavor

What makes this gin so particular is the 6 types of botanicals they used to make their spirit.
The base is made of Juniper, Orris, and Hinoki.

There is also a mix of citrus flavor. Yuzu and lemon are used to give a more complex taste to the gin. The gin has a slight taste of sherbet.

There are also Japanese herbs, such as sansho pepper and kinome sprout.

Added to this blend is ginger, and then a layer of fruity and floral, to finish off with a taste of green tea.
These tastes mix together so harmoniously to give it that distinctive Kyoto taste.

The distillation process

This gin is distilled in a much more complex manner than most gins. In fact, most gins are produced with the "one-shot" distillation process, but the method used by the Kyoto Distillery is quite time-consuming.
They separate the botanicals in the 6 categories enumerated above and are distilled separately. They are then mixed together to ensure a perfectly harmonious taste.

The three types of gins:

-Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry Gin (45.7% strength):
This gin has the 6 botanical tastes described above.

-Ki No Tea Kyoto Dry Gin (45.7% strength):
This one does not have the spice, fruity & floral, and herbal layers of taste.

-Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry Gin Navy Strength (54.5% strength):
This gin is very similar to the first one, however it is much stronger, so it is perfect for cocktails.
