Jinzu Gin is a unique mix of gin, sake, and cherry blossom
Japan: home of Godzilla, sushi, and sake. The strong wine made of rice is synonymous with Japanese culture and is exported all over the world. Whether you?re a huge fan of all things Japanese, or simply the person who always orders Ebi Maki because it?s the only sushi you know how to pronounce, everyone can appreciate a nice glass of sake.
Jinzu Gin is the unique idea from British barkeeper Dee Davies. Jinzu won Diageo?s high-profile competition ?Show Your Spirit? and was taken-on by the company. The spirit uses British gin as a base, having the classic juniper perfume which is beloved by millions. Sake from cherry blossom is adding during distillation to create a gin, the likes of which you have never seen before. Two alcohols in one, what could be better?
Jinzu has a distinctive bouquet with fruity and floral notes, complemented by the intoxicating scent of sake. This special mixture is conversation-starter required to break the ice at that dull party you?ve been dragged to by your significant other. A clear, dry gin, Jinzu feels soft in your mouth and is quite an experience. The combination of English juniper berries and Japanese cheery blossom is an inspiration; more gins should have this combination!
The Jinzu bottle is also very striking. The clear glass mirrors the clarity of Jinzu and the large golden stopper gives the bottle an imperial air. The vessel is decorated with cherry blossom, giving it an elegant, soft appearance. Cherry blossom is commonly accepted as the symbol of Japan and conjures up images of blushing Geishas and kimonos. With such a strong Japanese connection, it?s really no surprise that cherry blossom was selected as one of the main ingredients in Jinzu.
