Kozue Japanese Craft Gin

Kozue Japanese Craft Gin

$99.95

Kozue Japanese Craft Gin. This is a fresh, piney gin with many of the botanicals sourced from the local area. Some of them are listed on the label, including umbrella pine, mandarin, orange, lemon and Japanese pepper. The spice is quite punchy, with the juniper prominent. The citrus is a little more background – mandarin orange peel feels soft and fresh. Furthermore, the flavor of Sansho (Wakayama’s Japanese pepper) enhances the feeling of aftertaste – the flavor that will make you want to drink more.

Gin KOZUE is a new brand of Nakano BC. This craft small batch gin is distilled at the Wakayama-owned Fujishiro Distillery, which traditionally has distilled shochu (Japanese spirits). This gin is very different to other, citrus-forward Japanese gins on the market. Although Kozue is bottled at 47%, you will find that it’s actually really smooth on the palette and doesn’t quite hit you with the pine needles, so it’s not overbearing at all. This isn’t a dry gin — the juniper hides behind a veil of citrus and piny notes. The nose brings green notes of grass and pine, followed by pepper and earth. On the long finish, the pine needles reign supreme, joined by subtle hints of earth, mint, and citrus. This is one of the most promising gins to enter the market in 2017.
