Aichi Craft Gin Kiyosu is made by Kiyosuzakura, a company that brews sake since 1853. Already centuries ago they started to make shochu and liqueurs, like umeshu, too, and now they created this great gin. The ten botanicals used are juniper, caraway, lemon peel, Sansho pepper, cinnamon, chamomile, coriander, Nishio matcha, Mikan tangerine peel and Kintoki ginger. At 40% vol, Aichi is slightly lighter than most other Japanese gins.
At Foodex 2019 in Tokyo, Aichi Craft Gin won both the Gold Award and the Product Appreciation Award. The Aichi Craft Gin has an elegant complexity and is very well suited as Gin & Tonic as well as for cocktails, but is also a pure pleasure. We recommend a neutral tonic with little sweetness.
