The excellence of Nikka's Coffey distillates has been widely recognised through their Coffey Grain and Coffey Malt whiskies. In 2017, a new gin was added to Nikka's Coffey range, further displaying the uniqueness and beauty of the traditional Coffey Still. These expressions are the integration of Nikka's Coffey Stills, expertise in distilling gin since the 1960s and blending skills inherited from the founder.
Coffey Gin's complexity is achieved through the perfect balance between 11 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 peel. There is also a touch of apple, a fruit deeply related to the history of Nikka, followed by pleasantly tangy hints of green Japanese Sansho pepper on the finish. Bottled at a higher than normal 47% ABV.
