IWSC Bronze Award Winner
KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin
Inspired by tradition, KI NO BI (‘The Beauty of the Seasons’) is distilled, blended and bottled in Japan’s first purpose-built gin distillery in Kyoto. Their 11 carefully-selected botanicals are separated into six different categories or Elements: Base, Citrus, Tea, Herbal, Spice and Fruity & Floral.
Each of these 6 Elements is then macerated in rice spirit before being distilled individually and then blended together with pure water from a well in Fushimi. KI NO BI was named Contemporary Gin of the Year in 2018 (IWSC).
