Ki No Bi Sei Kyoto Dry Gin is a limited edition of the famous Japanese gin Ki No Bi classic. The word "Sei" comes from the Kanji character "勢" which means "power" in Japanese. This version, as its name suggests, was bottled at 54%, instead of the 45% of the original recipe.
Ki No Bi gins are produced by Kyoto Distillery from a rice spirit and a bouquet of 11 carefully selected Japanese botanicals ; Juniper berries, Orris roots, Hinoki bark (Japanese cypress), Kinome, Yuzu, Lemon, Ginger, green tea (Gyokuro), red Shiso and Bamboo leaves, and finally Sansho pepper.
The 11 ingredients are classified into 6 distinct flavors categories (base, citrus, tea, herbs, spices and floral), and each category is then macerated in rice alcohol before being individually distilled. The distillates are then blended before being left to rest, allowing the flavors to infuse giving a perfect balance to the gin.
Then the spirit is diluted with water of Fushimi known for its purity before being put again in vat of maceration for a definite period allowing an ideal harmony of the final blend.
