"We have strived to make a delicious dry gin, from local botanicals where possible, which does justice to the culture of craftsmanship for which Kyoto has been famed for over a thousand years. If we succeed in this objective, I am confident gin enthusiasts around the world will enjoy KI NO BI." - David Croll, founding member
KI NO BI is made from a rice-based spirit and high-quality local botanicals from Kyoto and other parts of Japan. Key ingredients that give KI NO BI its "Japanese accent" include yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit), green tea from Uji, ginger root, hinoki wood chips (Japanese cypress), shiso leaves, bamboo, and sansho berries (Japanese peppercorn). Water from Fushimi in southern Kyoto City, famous for its purity and the brewing of sake, is used to cut this spirit down to a bottling strength of 45.7%.
