Gin puts on an Asian outfit.

Jinzu is a side project made by Diageo’s Cameronbridge Distillery Outside Edinburgh. But it was created by professional bartender Dee Davis who entered Diageo’s “Show Your Spirit” competition in 2013, and Jinzu was her winning entry. And the judges liked it so much that Diageo decided to make it a real product. Dee travelled to Diageo’s World Innovation center and worked with Tanqueray master distiller Tom Nichol to perfect the production.

Jinzu sounds like a new oriental martial art. It also sounds like a Japanese pronunciation of the “Gin.” But Jinzu the spirit is a combination of grain-based Gin and Japanese Sake steeped with traditional Gin botanicals and a few Asian additions — including cherry blossom and yuzu (an east Asian citrus fruit). The net result is something that feels like Gin, but with a creamy sweetness that makes it pleasantly different at the same time.

Appearance / Color
Clear.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Citrus first, then pine and cherry.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Juniper is the core, but the zest and florals dance on top with fresh cream.

Finish
Gentle but long, with each flavour lingering both separately and in harmony.
Flavor Spiral TM
About the Flavor Spiral
What does Jinzu Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Jinzu 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.

Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
The scale of this massive distillery is amazing. 136 million liters is enough to fill more than 3,100 tanker trucks to the brim.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
