About KI NO BI Kyoto Dry GinKyoto Distillery has the incredible distinction of being Japan’s first dedicated artisanal gin distillery. Founded in 2015 by David Croll and Marcin Miller, the facility is situated in Minami-Ku, in southern Kyoto City, nearby the famed Fushimi region, known for centuries for its production of nihon-shu (Japanese sake). Ki No Bi was launched in 2016…
Ki No Bi which translates to “The Beauty of the Seasons,” is made using locally sourced ingredients and incredibly meticulous craftsmanship. The production process is overseen by Masami Onishi, a former Chief Blender, and Suntory, and Head Distiller Alex Davies, a former distiller at Chase and Cotswold distilleries.
This incredibly distinctive Japanese gin is a balanced rice spirit based, blend of 11 botanicals including yellow yuzu from the north of Kyoto Prefecture, hinoki wood chips (Japanese cypress), bamboo leaves, gyokuro tea from the Uji region and green sanshō (Japanese peppercorn) berries. The gin is pot distilled, using a steeping technique to infuse the botanicals into the spirit for several hours. Post-distillation the elements are blended and cut to proof at 45.7% ABV using water sourced from underground Fushimi. This special Kyoto dry gin was awarded a Gold Medal in the ‘Contemporary Gin’ category at the 2017 IWSC awards.

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
