Distilled from 100% British wheat spirit along juniper berries, coriander seeds, cassia bark, angelica root, pink grapefruit peel and cubeb berries, spices work with the fresh grapefruit to tame the tea's tannins offering a balanced yet dry taste.
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. Instead, gin’s flavor is introduced to the alcohol when it is in a vaporous form and made to pass through a “filter” of juniper berries, herbs and spices.
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.
Some beet sugar from the house owned farm is added to create a balance of sweet and sourness in smell and taste. Due to the high-water quality of the own springs in upper Austria, the sloe gin gets its very mild and soft finish.

Forming part of Teeling’s popular Small Batch Collaboration series, this bottling has been finished for a period in Finnish distillery Kyrö’s barrel aged Rye Gin casks.

The final result is a striking whiskey, rich in notes of gin botanicals, rye spice, citrus rind, buttery grain, cinnamon, peach, apple, hay, light white wine and toffee. Bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this presentation allows the whiskey’s unique flavour profile to really assert itself.
