Nikka Coffey Gin 700mL ABV 47%

$118.00

Product Description

Created from maize and malted barley in the Coffey stills of the Miyagikyo distillery, this gin, produced for 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 fragrant 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. Its verdant character evokes green tea and mint tea. Bitter oranges give the end of the palate lots of energy.

 

The Brand

Born into a family of sake producers in 1894, Masataka Taketsuru is considered to be the father of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he began working for the Settsu Shuzo company, who sent him to Scotland in 1919 to carry out an apprenticeship. There he developed a passion for whisky and decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. His growing success enabled him to open a second distillery near Sendai in 1969: Miyagikyo. The Nikka Whisky group creates its entire line of Japanese whiskies using single malts from these two distilleries.
