Tasting Notes

It may sound like hyperbole but this is simply one of the more impressive gins you're likely to come across. The elements of Japanese Craft that are associated with meticulous craftsmanship, respect for nature and an obsession with perfection and refinement come together in this gin. Made from a base of local Miyazaki sweet potatoes and sugar cane with the additions of local botanicals of juniper berries, yuzu, sansho, hebesu, hyuganatsu, sweet potato and rice koji. The flavors are full of vibrant citrus, earth and spices. Incredibly precise like a lightning bolt on the palate. Nothin else quite like this one. Highly recommended.

Staff Pick Notes

Here's a gin for the discerning spirits enthusiast with a sweet potato shochu base & botanical building blocks native to the Miyazaki Prefecture where the Kyoya Distillery is located. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with hyuganatsu, a pithy sort of pomelo hybrid. Have you met hebesu, a local delicacy of the region? This small green citrus is a super fruit purported to fight the aging process, neuroinflammatory issues & cancer. Say hello to sansho, a versatile peppercorn whose buds and flowers can also be incorporated into various culinary fare. In line with the other botanicals, this plant is also a member of the citrus family and a host plant for at least two species of butterflies. And don't forget the yuzu, both tart and intensely aromatic. Bright & refreshing, this will be the star of my cocktail show all summer.
