Ki No Tea Green Tea Dry Gin

The Ki No Tea Green Distillery, the city’s first dedicated gin maker, has fast become recognised for its fastidious attention to detail. Its second release, Ki No Tea, has been meticulously created to the same exacting standards. The limited edition expression is the result of a partnership with noted tea grower and blender Hori-Shichimeien, which was founded just to the south of Kyoto in 1879. A carefully selected blend of teas, including Tencha and Gyokuro, have been added to the botanical recipe (Hinoki cypress, yuzu and juniper, among others) which imparts an intense aroma and depth of flavour. Chic, elegant and dignified.

This Ki No Tea Green gin is distinguished by its botanicals including Gyokuro & Tencha teas. Tencha are the green tea leaves that when ground into a fine powder become Matcha, while Gyokuro is a green tea grown shaded from the strength of the full sun. The tea leaves used are harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard which dates back to 1300s and this gin is produced with the help and collaboration or tea-grower and blender, Hori-Shichimeien, based in the famous Uji tea region to the south of Kyoto city.

Nose:

Delicate citrus followed by a warming green tea aroma, then distant juniper.

A real sweetness comes through, not dissimilar to milk chocolate. Then it’s all about the juniper, floral tea notes and grassiness.

Finish:

Clean, refreshing and super-long…

Overall:

A graceful gin ideal for long drinks, Martinis and even sipping.
