A new ultra-premium series from The Kyoto Distillery

The Kyoto Distillery proudly announces the inaugural release in a new ultra-premium series. KI NO JYU is a collaborative project with Horii Shichimeien, a historic tea farmer in Uji, Kyoto, whose teas are used for our products, including the multi-award-winning KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin.

Gyokuro is considered the finest green tea and is also known for its unique cultivation, grown under nets to develop intense aromas and sweet flavours. The type of gyokuro used for KI NO JYU is okuno yama (meaning ‘deep mountain’), and is grown in Uji’s oldest tea garden, dating back to the 15th century. We recommend serving neat to savour the floral aromas and hints of sweetness.

The label designs have been created in collaboration with Kira Karacho, part of the Karacho karakami atelier founded in Kyoto in 1624. The label’s jewel design is hand-printed on Kyoto-made washi paper from the hand-carved wood block. The printed washi paper is then divided into six pieces and carefully applied to each bottle. Released exclusively in Japan.

Where to buy

< Tasting Note >

With notes of rich green tea and fresh citrus, KI NO JYU is recommended to be served neat to experience the floral aromas and hints of sweetness that come through on the finish.
