Nikka Coffey Gin
While Nikka is primarily known for its award-winning whiskies, the company also has a long history of distilling white spirits for the domestic market, including gin and vodka. Since 2017, Nikka has developed stunning new gin and vodka expressions based 100% on their Coffey still distillate.47% View All Nikka
Nose: Loads of citrus fruit to start – yuzu, lemon zest and rich orange juice. Palate: Initially sweet but then the citrus rolls in – layers of fruit, grounded by soft spice and earthy juniper. Finish: A long finish with a blend of rich oak, tobacco and mild chocolate.
Nikka Coffey Gin integrates Nikka’s decades of experience in distilling white spirits and blending whiskies. All the base distillate comes through the Coffey Still, a traditional continuous still that produces Nikka’s signature grain whiskies, giving this gin a silky texture and rich body. Its aromatic complexity relies on the delicate balance of various botanicals including Japanese citrus Yuzu, Amanatsu, Kabosu and Shequasar. There is also a touch of apples, a fruit deeply related to the history of Nikka, followed by pleasantly tangy hints of Japanese Sansho pepper on the finish.
