in stock

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.

Key Flavours

"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."

About this product

Tencha and Gyokuro are the two teas selected by Hori-Shichimeien, harvested from within the Okunoyama tea yard – a garden that dates back to the 1300s.

Ki No Bi Gin is made at Kyoto Distillery, which was established by long-serving drinks PR Marcin Muller and his business partner David Croll, along with Suntory’s former chief blender Mas Onishi and distiller Alex Davies.

Kyoto Distillery bring a craft lead approach usually only reserved for the country's Whisky. Their use of local botanicals, rice. Base spirit and their carefully refined aesthetic set a new standard for Japanese Gin.

More from KI NO BI

Ki No Bi Gin

Filled with such a brilliantly executed flavour journey featuring native ingredients - when Japan’s Ki No Bi launched back in 2016, it was destined to be Gin's next global superstar.

"Fresh on the nose - to taste, there's yuzu and lemon, leading into juniper and hinoki followed by sancho pepper and a gingery warmth. The shiso, tea and bamboo all add complexity, so too does the rise base. A beautiful gin."
