Jinzu Gin, by Dee DaviesJinzu Gin, by Dee Davies

Jinzu is being described as a British gin with a Japanese twist, and uses both traditional & Japanese botanicals - along with the addition of sake. This gin is named after the Jinzu River, which is lined by over 1,000 cherry trees - one of the Jinzu's principle unique flavours. The gin is made by infusing juniper berries, coriander and angelica in neutral grain spirit in a copper pot still, before adding yuzu fruit & Japanese cherry blossom prior to starting distillation. Junmai sake is then blended with the gin. The resultant gin is surprisingly weighty and intense in style, with a powerful aroma and flavour profile that is unashamedly brash and contemporary. The cherry, yuzu and sake notes come through strongly, dominating the traditional juniper-lead botanicals, and imparting Jinzu with a strikingly bold point of difference. Although a far cry from traditional London Dry styles, it does actually work remarkably well with (Fever Tree) tonic water, and is immensely mixable - and versatile - in a wide range of long and short cocktails.
