The House of KI NO BI
The House of KI NO BI is a renovated traditional ‘machiya’ townhouse built over 100 years ago as a timber mill; the original interiors including earthen walls, beams and roof tiles have been retained to preserve the authentic ambience.
As with our gins, we have used local materials wherever possible for the House of KI NO BI, including handmade furniture by local craftsman Mr. Goda and a traditional Nishijin fabric company, Hosoo. Here you will be able to learn more about gin and its history, the ingredients that make KI NO BI exceptional and take a VR tour of the distillery.
We will offer a blending room, seminars for gin enthusiasts and a shop with exclusive items to showcase the distillery’s brand philosophy and identity as a pioneer of Japanese gin.
