One of the most quintessentially Japanese Gins there is.

Founded by Steven Pattison and Richard Ryan in 2007, Kirker Greer Spirits is one of those rare, 100% independently owned companies that can offer a large-scale portfolio – get you an independently owned company that can do both, right! Producing an ethical range of 10 Spirit categories from 4 continents, their brands are sold in over 50 countries around the world. The Ukiyo range of Japanese Gin and Vodka is a brand offering three senses-evoking expressions: Ukiyo Japanese Rice Vodka, Japanese Yuzu Gin, and Ukiyo Japanese Blossom Gin.

Made in the south of Japan in the town of Kagoshima, Ukiyo Japanese Blossom Gin begins with arguably the most traditional Japanese Spirit you can find – Shochu, made from locally-grown rice. Then, it’s redistilled with juniper, mandarin, and spice to prep the base for infusion with the delicate sakura flower. The result is a fragrant and citrus forward Gin that will make you feel like you’re out there, taking a nice walk on the Japanese coast. Bottled at 80 proof, it comes in a unique, eye-stopping pink-blue bottle that is reason enough to buy this delicate and aromatic Gin.

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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
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.
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.
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!
