Ki No Bi SEI Kyoto Dry Gin
Ki No Bi SEI Kyoto Dry Gin is made similar to the Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry GIn using 11 botanicals that are distilled in six distinct flavour categories.
The name SEI (勢), meaning ‘power’, has been chosen as this expression has evolved from the Japanese interpretation of the traditional Navy Strength style, recalibrated by Ki No Bi's distilling team to assert greater botanical intensity at the higher proof.
Created, blended and bottled at the dedicated artisanal distillery in Kyoto, KI NO BI SEI is a Japanese gin distilled from rice spirit, complemented by the addition of regional botanicals such as yellow yuzu, hinoki, sansho pepper, bamboo leaf, cave-aged ginger and fine gyokuro tea from renowned Uji tea grower Horii Shichimeien. The separate distillates are blended together with the famed waters of Fushimi from Tsuki-no-Katsura, a sake brewery dating back to 1675.
The label design has been created in collaboration with KIRA KARACHO, part of the KARACHO KARAKAMI atelier founded in Kyoto in 1624.
Similar nose to the Kyoto Dry. Yuzu and juniper notes are overwhelmingly present with slight spicy notes from the sansho and ginger. Juniper and citrus notes on the palate with a crisp, refreshing and spicy finish.
