The gin produced by the MARS Whiskey Tsukan Distillery in the southernmost part of Kagoshima, Shinshu, uses natural plants native to Kagoshima, including juniper, yuzu, green tea, ginger, lemon, Tsuruzuka bitter orange, Saigon cinnamon leaf, gold It is a blend of 9 kinds of plants including orange and perilla.
Using "shochu as the base", rice and rice koji are used and distilled to produce gin with a citrus note and a soft aroma. The aftertaste is quite memorable, and the fragrance of rice lingers in the mouth, which is very Japanese. Whether it is mixed with water, warm water or green tea, it is very delicious!
Taste and flavor:
On the palate it is fresh and sharp, with bright and powerful citrus on the palate, tapering to a warm and dry spice, with a long and fragrant finish. The aroma of juniper berries is nice but not overpowering, and the flavors are very harmonious.
