The fermentation process is similar to whiskey production. The fundamental difference is that the congeners, the natural taste elements that are so necessary to Bourbon and Scotch are absent.

Iron Balls Gin is meticulously crafted at A R. Sutton & Co Engineers micro distillery in the heart of Bangkok. Due to the small size of the distillery, production is extremely limited, for this reason master distiller Ash Sutton chooses to use the best possible ingredients available and in-turn craft an artisan spirit that is beyond measure. Quality over quantity as the saying goes. Iron Balls Gin is handmade from fermentation to distillation using freshly cracked coconuts and pineapples with hints of juniper, hillside ginger and lemongrass. A great refreshing gin & tonic served on ice with fresh slices of pineapple, basil and a squeezed lime.
KI NO BI is the first of its kind; a Japanese gin created, blended and bottled at a dedicated artisanal distillery in Kyoto using local ingredients, with a recipe inspired by the history and culture of the ancient city. Staying true to its name (‘The Beauty of the Seasons’), KI NO BI’s rice base spirit is blended together with regional botanicals such as yuzu, hinoki wood chips, sansho pepper and gyokuro tea from Uji. It is then reduced with pure Fushimi spring water to a bottling strength of 45.7% ABV.
