Based in two small buildings in the suburbs of the historic city of Kyoto, The Kyoto Distillery is thought to be Japan’s first dedicated gin distillery. Also the first licensed distillery in Kyoto, it was founded by Number One Drinks Company Japan’s Marcin Miller and David Croll last year, with former Cotswolds and Chase distiller Alex Davies stepping into the role of head distiller. Highly respected former Suntory master distiller Masami Onishi also joined the company as a consultant.
