Nikka Coffey Gin

The Essence of Japanese Citrus

Crafted in the historic distilleries of Hokkaido, Nikka Coffey Gin is a brilliant testament to Japanese craftsmanship and the innovative spirit of its creators. Utilizing the traditional Coffey stills that brought fame to its whiskey, Nikka introduces a gin that blends a delicate mix of local and traditional botanicals, creating a zestful and nuanced spirit.

Crafting a Citrus Symphony

Distilled with meticulous care, Nikka Coffey Gin marries the vibrant zest of yuzu, kabosu, amanatsu, and shequasar—each a distinct Japanese citrus—with the classic juniper base of traditional gins. The inclusion of orange peel, lime zest, and peppers, suspended over the vapors during distillation, infuses the gin with a crisp, citrus-forward profile that is uniquely refreshing.

A Palette of Pure Refreshment

Nose: The gin opens with a bright bouquet of citrus aromas, where yuzu and kabosu lead into subtler notes of amanatsu (yellow citrus) and shequasar (aka the Taiwan tangerine or Okinawa lime), complemented by undertones of fresh juniper and angelica.

Palate: Lightly sweet at the onset, the palate quickly unfolds into a blaze of citrusy zest. Flavors of honey and light maple weave through the crisp notes of pumpernickel and white peppercorn, enhanced by a backdrop of vanilla and toasted oak.

A Celebration of Innovation

Building on the success of its renowned Coffey Grain and Malt, Nikka's venture into gin and vodka using Coffey stills is a bold expansion of their portfolio. This gin, perfected with the expertise developed since the 1960s and the innovative approach that marks Nikka's history, offers a crisp and versatile profile ideal for sophisticated cocktails like martinis.

A Toast to Japanese Craftsmanship

Nikka Coffey Gin is more than just a spirit; it's a celebration of heritage, innovation, and the artful melding of East and West. Enjoy it in a chilled martini to accentuate its citrus notes, or savor it neat to fully appreciate the complexity brought forth by its unique blend of Japanese citruses and traditional botanicals. An inviting choice for connoisseurs seeking to explore a fresh facet of gin craftsmanship.
