Tasting Notes

KI NO TEA is our product created by collaboration with tea-grower and blender, Hori-Shichimeien, founded in the Meiji era in 1879. Based in the famous Uji region to the south of Kyoto city, a number if 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. We use leaves harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard, that dates back to 1300's, and blend carefully with a secret botanical recipe used only in KI NO TEA. Gentle aromas give the impression of walking into a silent Japanese tea house. First, sweet notes like white-chocolate and citrus arise from the glass, then juniper. KI NO TEA finishes with a very long lasting, warm green tea fragrance.

The most popular and therefore most common way�for producing gin is called the �one-shot� distillation method; using this�process the maker only distils their macerated liquid once.
