June’s Limited Edition Gin is “Forest Shower
This month’s gin is a green gin with the aroma of fresh greenery in the fields and mountains squeezed into the bottle.
YASO distiller Sugikawa was in charge of this gin.
Most of the wildflowers used were fresh ones Sugikawa collected in the mountains of Tanine in Kashiwazaki City, Niigata Prefecture.
Green aromas were extracted from sansho leaves, kakidooshi, peppermint,fig leaves, mitsuba, and kaya nut, to which juicy and citrusy notes were added with sansho pepper, hebes pulp, yuzu pulp, and kuromoji.
The image we had in mind was that of a forest in Yaneko, where the sunlight shines on the fresh greenery.
This is why we named this gin “Forest Shower”.
The aroma of fresh new greenery in early summer and juicy citrus like the shining sun and babbling brook are perfect for the coming sweaty season.
When mixed with Fever Tree elderflower, the aroma of kaya nut spreads at once, creating a refreshing gin and tonic that makes you feel as if you are in the forest.
