Quintessential and exceptional Japanese Gin
 
Certain Whisky-makers decide to shake things up while they wait for their amber product to reach maturity, so they grab their stills and make Gin. Bruichladdich made the glorious Botanist and the Kingsbarns distillery created the fabulous Darnley. Now, the alpha of Japanese Whiskies, Nikka, came up with a lavish and unique expression of Gin. It’s distilled in the famous Coffey stills (designed by Aeneas Coffey and imported from Scotland to Japan in the 1960s), which gives it its name and uniqueness.
 
Corn and malt distillate serves as a base while an abundance of botanicals is thrown in: Japanese citrus hybrid Amantasu, angelica, apple, coriander, Hirami lemon, Japanese pepper, juniper, Kabosu and Yuzu. Only 12 thousand bottles were made and while you’d be wise to put it in a Gin and Tonic or a Negroni, you’d be wiser to sip on it neat – expect a ridiculously long finish and a palate you’ve never experienced before. Nikka seems to fail at failing.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
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.
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.
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.
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!
