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. The team reviews 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 nose is thick, sweet and complex, with notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, fruit, orange citrus jam and spices such as cinnamon. On the palate, the 19th Edition is wonderfully sweet at first, developing rich, spicy and well-rounded characters on the mid-palate. Oak, spice/candied ginger and a nuttiness play a large part in the overall flavour profile. The finish is long, complex and pleasant, with a light astringency.

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.
