Gin from Nikka?! Oh yes, my friends, the folks at Nikka aren't simply just whisky geniuses - they're accomplished gin producers too! Produced in Coffey stills using a base of barley and corn, Nikka Coffey Gin features a selection of enjoyably vibrant botanicals, including amanatsu, kabosu, shikuwasa and yuzu, as well as sansho pepper, among others.
Creamy lemon with a subtle oily element developing, soon joined by almost tropical fruit sweetness. This is well-balanced by peppercorn, pine and fennel.
