KINOHBI 12th Edition

KI NOH BI “12th Edition”

KI NOH BI is a cask aged version of our classic KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin. Filled into cask at a high strength, the gin is carefully monitored by our distilling team during the maturation process to ensure the optimum balance between botanical flavours and influence from the wood. They then review the final liquid, making minor adjustments using the 6 Elements to maintain the overall harmony. KI NOH BI is bottled after dilution with Fushimi water.

The 12th Edition has been aged for about a year in a barrel previously used to mature Caroni Rum. The aged gin was then sweetened with kokutou (literally ‘black sugar’) from the Okinawan island of Yonaguni which adds complexity to the final product.

The label continues the tradition of Number One Drinks Company bottling a series of single cask Japanese whiskies in collaboration with the Kamiasobi Noh Troupe.
