Kiyosuzakura Aichi Craft Gin Kiyosu 500ml
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.
About Kiyosuzakura Brewery Corp.
The Kiyosuzakura Brewery was founded in 1853 and is located in Kiyosu in Aichi Prefecture on Japan's main island Honshu. For over 160 years, the company has concentrated on brewing sake, but for several decades it has also been producing shochu, liqueurs, for example umeshu, wine and now gin. Kiyosu is located on the edge of Nagoya City, where the three rivers Kiso Ibi, Kiso and Nagara provide very fertile soil. This environment offers ideal conditions for sake brewing, but also for the production of high-quality spirits.
The company is very progressive and environmentally conscious and works a lot on new forms of packaging. For example, a popular umeshu from the brewery is now only filled in beverage cartons and no longer in bottles, which has a positive effect on the eco footprint.
