“While gin distilling was not unknown in the country, the template had always been low-cost, London Dry styles. The idea of making a premium gin, using Japanese botanicals was unheard of. It would take a shift in public opinion (and palate) as well as a bold decision by a new producer to show that it was possible.”

Delve into the world of The Kyoto Distillery, awarded the IWSC Trophy for International Gin Producer of the Year in 2019, and its flagship gin, KI NO BI, the first to be made in the ancient capital of Japan and intricately crafted from a selection of Japanese botanicals such as yuzu citrus, gyokuro green tea and sansho peppercorns. For this book, produced by Kyoto Journal, the Kyoto Distillery called upon 15 of the world’s most acclaimed bartenders to come up with their own special take on the classic gin cocktail.
