Ki No Tea is the result of a collaboration between Kyoto Distillery and the Hori-Shichimeian tea assembler and producer whose plantation, founded during the Meiji era in 1879, is located in the famous Uji region, south of Kyoto.
This limited edition Japanese gin Ki No Bi consists of several teas (Tencha and Gyokuro) specially selected to create the heart of Ki No Tea bringing flavors and a more intense sweetness than the original recipe. The leaves collected in the Okunoyama tea parcel, whose origins date back to the 1300s, are mixed with other botanicals according to a unique recipe specially developed for this version.
Each ingredient is then macerated in rice alcohol before being distilled individually. 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.
