Ki No Tea Gin is a collaboration between Kyoto Distillery and tea-grower Hori-Shichimeien, a company founded in 1879. The teas bring a huge depth of flavour and a light sweetness that makes for easy sipping.

Ki No Tea in is a soft, delicate gin with a complex, almost hay-like aroma and a zesty citrus burst. It’s divine in a Martini with a twist of lemon but if you want it long, try soda water instead of tonic.

"Soft citrus and green tea waft up on the nose. Sweet and herbaceous centred on the pine notes of juniper. Roasted green tea notes are clear throughout, but even more so on the finish. A stunning gin."
