Ki No Tea

 

Price: £50 (US$65)

A Gold went to The Kyoto Distillery’s Ki No Tea gin, which “captured the green tea really well” according to judges.

The limited edition expression was created in collaboration with tea-grower and blender, Hori-Shichimeien, founded in the Meiji era in 1879. A number of super-premium Uji teas were chosen for the creation of Ki No Tea including Tencha and Gyokuro. Leaves harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard were also blended with a “secret botanical recipe” used in the gin.
