UKIYO - Yuzu

The term ukiyo refers to a state of mind emphasising living in the moment, detached from the difficulties of life.

Born in Kagoshima in the shadow of the Sakurajima volcano our Gin is made from a base of traditional Japanese shōchū spirit. When redistilled the high-quality shōchū produces a gentler gin that has a beautifully soft mouthfeel.

Yuzu is a citrus fruit that is cultivated and beloved within Japan. Visually similar to a lemon but with a powerful fragrance, unique herbal notes, mild bitterness, and a less sharp acid flavour.

Our Yuzu Gin is born from a base of locally grown barley that is distilled into a traditional shōchū spirit. We redistill our shōchū with juniper, yuzu, regional citrus and botanicals, respecting the 1500 year old tradition of cultivating and harvesting yuzu in Japan. The yuzu flavour is tart and fragrant, resembling that of the lemon and grapefruit, with overtones of mandarin orange.
