KI NO BI ranked among ‘the world’s most innovative spirits launches in 2016’ and is crafted using a rice spirit base with Japan-sourced ingredients such as yuzu citrus, sansho berries (Japanese peppercorn), hinoki cypress, and gyokuro tea to provide distinctive notes and a revealing finish. In this episode, we’ll visit with The Kyoto Distillery’s head distiller, Alex Davies, and explore his craft of vinting a traditional London dry gin steeped in traditional Japanese culture.
