Joyous Gin from Japan
 
What does one have to do to get a double gold for Gin? Well, for starters, you need the know-how and top-notch ingredients. One of the first Japanese Gins has all of it. Made in Hokkaido by the Asahikawa distillery, Etsu means jubilation or joy in Japanese. It’s a floral extravaganza with some botanicals you won’t find in non-Nippon Gins, like green tea leaves, sansho pepper, and yuzu, the endemic Japanese citrus that tastes sort of like grapefruit.
 
They make Etsu following a secret recipe, sourcing the water from Taisetsu mountains and filtering it through charcoal. The Spirit comes in a lovely bottle with a geisha sitting in a yuzu leaf. A bunch of knowledge and work went into this glorious Gin.

What does Etsu Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Etsu Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

London dry gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as spirits such as cognac, scotch or tequila. Only a tiny handful of London dry gins are actually made in the city.

Ratings & Reviews
Marcus
Marcus,
Solid gin with unique aromatics.

Jeremy,
Has a lot of the same flavor notes as Japanese contemporaries Roku and Ki No Bi. Not quite as good as either, but still a nice option for someone looking for something more adventurous than London gin but want more subtlety than most New American bottles offer.
