Komasa Gin is the craft gin label proudly presented by Komasa Jyozo, a shochu distillery in Kagoshima, Japan with over 130 years of distilling history. Gin and shochu both share the fact that they are distilled spirits. Drawing on decades of distilling expertise and know-how accumulated through making shochu, the distillery unveiled a new line of gins in 2018.

Komasa Jyozo uses their rice shochu as the base for Komasa Gin, to which they add juniper berries and as few other ingredients as possible in order to let the main botanicals shine on their own. Komasa Jyozo’s goal is to utilize and express the natural fragrances and flavours of their quality ingredients to the fullest. With Komasa Gin, they hope they have hit upon a revolutionary style of gin that is eminently easy to drink and perfect for everyone.

The Sakurajima komikan is one of the world’s smallest mandarins, with a diameter of just 4cm. They are local to Sakurajima, Kagoshima, and are known for their rich fragrance and sweetness. Compared to a regular orange or lemon, the flavour of the Sakurajima komikan is much more delicate and subtle. These tiny, unassuming mikan were the key in opening a new world for Japanese craft gin.

The juniper contrasts with the sweet, fragrant mandarin citrus with hints of coriander. Pair with either soda or tonic.
