A botanical gin from Hokkaido.

Inspired by the local folktales and famously tart shiso perilla leaves of Shiranuka, Hokkaido, this bottle of craft gin is beautifully blended with 5 types of botanicals. With a combination of liquorice root, angelica root, juniper berries, coriander seeds and orange peel, the distinctive bittersweet taste of perilla in this gin is refined into a sharp, complex palate, full of herbal aromas, fruity notes and a spiced finish. Based on the Ainu legend of Tan Taka, who sought shiso perilla leaves to save the region's suffering sea life, this crystal clear gin pairs with tonic and classic Japanese dishes, from sushi and tempura, to sukiyaki.

Alcohol 37% ABV.

VARU-ID: #17685
