Nikka Coffey Japanese Gin 700ml

Created from maize and malted barley in the Coffey stills of the Miyagikyo distillery, this gin, produced from the first time by Nikka, sees the addition of a large number of citrus fruit (yuzu, kabosu, amanatsu, hirami lemon) and juniper berries.
The extremely fragant initial nose reveals incredibly intense lime and orange blossom. Allowed to breathe, it develops into a more milky (coconut), luscious (juniper), spicy (grey pepper, pink peppercorn) and stone fruit (apricot) register.
At once lively and unctuous, the attack reveals new aromatic plants (sage, verbena). On the mid-palate, citrus fruit, lemon in particular, and ripe fruits (apple, pear) take the upper hand before in turn being covered in strong spices (star anise, grated ginger). The mouthwatering finish is like chewing on a liquorice stick.

Following the success of Coffey Grain and Coffey Malt, two new expressions, Coffey Gin and Coffey Vodka, were added to the range in 2017 to further pursue the beauty of the Coffey stills. This project was accomplished by combining the tangible and intangible assets of Nikka such as the traditional Coffey stills, expertise in distilling gin and vodka since the 1960s, and blending skills inherited from the founder, along with the innovative mind.
The excellence of Nikka’s Coffey distillates has been widely recognized through the extensive line-up.
Coffey Gin’s complexity is achieved through the perfect balance between 11 selected botanicals and the silky texture of Coffey distillates.
The bright and zesty aroma originating from four kinds of Japanese citruses, Yuzu, Kabosu, Amanatsu and Shequasar, compliments the traditional gin botanicals of juniper berries, angelica, coriander seeds, lemon and orange peels.
There is also a touch of apples, a fruit deeply related to the history of Nikka, followed by pleasantly tangy hints of green Japanese Sansho pepper on the finish.
