Komasa Gin Hojicha
A wonderful tea-infused gin from Komasa Jyozo, the Hojicha expression is infused with juniper berries, shochu, Japanese cypress and roasted tea leaves from Kagoshima, which is one of Japan’s most famous tea producing regions, we’ll have you know. Roasting the green tea means that the caffeine bitterness is eliminated, making for a more aromatic, mellow flavour. Pair the gin with hot water in the same way you would with tonic for an intriguing, fragrant tipple.
Rather forest-y, with roasted, leafy green tea alongside earthy juniper, leading into a touch of sweetness and a fragrant, woody finish.
