The world's first gin to focus solely on Japanese botanicals; Master Distiller became enamoured with these exciting and unusual flavours, which were only accessible because of Cambridge Distillery's low-temperature distillation processes.
Japanese Gin is made using six botanicals: juniper, shiso leaf, sesame seeds, cucumber, sansho and yuzu: each distilled individually in a vacuum, then blended together for exceptional purity of flavour. Serve long with an equally delicate tonic, and garnish with a fan of crisp green apple.
Each bottle of Japanese Gin is screen-printed by hand in Cambridge: the Distillery Dog Darcy, found on every bottle of gin they produce, faces to the right on Japanese Gin – as facing "forward" is considered more fortuitous in Japanese culture.
APPEARANCE: Bright, crystal clear.
NOSE: Light, elegant, fresh green notes with gentle underlying pine / juniper.
PALATE: Dry, Light bodied. Delicate, yet immediate, fresh green notes (shiso) and juniper. Soft, rounded light body with gentle (sansho) peppery spice and lifted warmth from well-integrated alcohol and citrus (yuzu) notes.
