KI NO TEA Kyoto Dry Gin

KINOBI with Gyokuro & Tencha

KI NO TEA is our product created by 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.

We use leaves harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard, that dates back to 1300’s, and blend carefully with a secret botanical recipe used only in KI NO TEA.

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.

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.
