A fragrant, delicate, and purposeful Gin with a unique citrus profile and Japanese flare.

Kyushu is the second largest island in Japan, located in the far south. On the southwestern coast of this island sits the Komasa Distillery. This beautifully-ordered facility has been producing fine Shochu and Liqueurs for nearly 140 years and is still lead by a member of the founding Komasa family — Yoshitsugu Komasa. The distillery is in a rural district and uses local ingredients for all of their products.

Komasa Sakurajima Komikan Gin is a delicate Gin with a distinctly Japanese flare. It begins using extra-distilled Shochu — fermented using koji — as the base. Then, in addition to the tradition Gin botanicals of juniper and coriander, they ad local Sakurajima komikan — a small citrus fruit in the mandarin family. The combination is wonderfully complex, delicate… precise and purposeful in every nuance.

Smartass Corner:
Shochu can be made from a wide variety of bases. It’s probably best thought of as a cross between Sake and Vodka in flavor and alcohol content. Shochu made from barley is widely considered to be the highest quality with a more delicate profile and floral character.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
