KI NO TEA Kyoto Dry Gin - 70cl - 45.1% ABV
KI NO TEA was created in 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. The distillery uses leaves harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard, that dates back to 1300’s, and blend them carefully with a secret botanical recipe.
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.
