KI NOH BI is a cask aged version of our classic KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin. Filled into cask at a high strength, the gin is carefully monitored by our distilling team during the maturation process to ensure the optimum balance between botanical flavours and influence from the wood. They then review the final liquid, making minor adjustments using the 6 Elements to maintain the overall harmony. KI NOH BI is bottled after dilution with Fushimi water.
NOH14 is a blend of 2 different Karuizawa ex-Sherry casks and Mizunara virgin oak cask. It has warm oak, toasted caramel and a hint of vanilla aroma, followed by ripe stone fruit and nutty cereal.
The label continues the tradition of Number One Drinks Company bottling a series of single cask Japanese whiskies in collaboration with the Kamiasobi Noh Troupe.
