The Kyoto Distillery are proud to partner with Champagne Henri Giraud in this ground-breaking collaboration, a collaboration that came about after 12th generation owner Claude Giraud’s visit to The Kyoto Distillery.
Possibly a world’s first, KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin has been aged in oak barriques sourced from the Champagne region’s Argonne Forest and previously used to mature Henri Giraud’s finest Champagnes.
Regularly monitored by our distillery team, the gin has been carefully matured to the point where fruitiness and vanilla oaky influence are in perfect harmony with the original botanical blend. We recommend drinking as a highball or French 75.
About the Winery
The first Japanese gin made in Kyoto.
KI NO BI (The Beauty of the Seasons) is inspired by tradition and is distilled, blended and bottled in Kyoto. Our gin is made in a recognisable dry style but with a distinct Japanese accent. KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin is created with Japanese botanicals such as yellow yuzu from the north of Kyoto Prefecture, hinoki wood chips (Japanese cypress), bamboo, gyokuro tea from the Uji region and green sansh? (Japanese peppercorn) berries.
Bottled at 45.7% ABV, KI NO BI uses a rice spirit base and peerless water sourced in the famous sake brewing district, Fushimi.
