KI NO BI SEI Gin 700ml
KI NO BI SEI is made according to the same intricate production method as the original KI NO BI, using 11 botanicals distilled in six distinct flavour categories, known as the 6 Elements. The final blend has been re-calibrated by our distilling team to bring out the best of each botanical at the higher strength. This bottling is at the traditional Royal Navy strength of 54.5% abv, often confused with 100 proof, or 57.1% abv.
The name “SEI” comes from the Kanji character “勢” which carries the meaning of “power” in Japanese.
Total production is 7,500 bottles and will be available in specialty liquor shops and department stores. Half of the production will be distributed in the Japanese market and the rest will be allocated to our exclusive distributors in Europe, the US and Asia.
Tasting Note: The higher proof allows the distinctive taste of KI NO BI’s flavour profile to prevail. It’s punchy at first on the palate, while retaining the cleanness and harmony of the original KI NO BI. All of the flavours are enhanced while remaining well-balanced. A perfect gin for cocktails.
