Spirit of the Month: February 2019
We choose our Spirit of the Month to highlight some of the greatest spirits in the world. Some of them are age-old classics, some of them are great new releases, but whatever it is, you can be sure that it's something we love. This month we've chosen:
Jinzu GinPlease wait Please wait
A blend of spirit from Scottish distillery Cameronbridge and distilled sake, this is a fresh, clean gin with a creamy mouthfeel and underlying sweetness thanks to its sake core. That being said, Jinzu is rooted firmly in the London Dry style: infused with a mix of traditional gin botanicals such as juniper, angelica and coriander, with a layer of aromatic complexity thanks to the inclusion of zesty yuzu and floral cherry blossom. A gin to appeal to purists and experimental drinkers alike; garnish your G&T with a slice of green apple to accentuate Jinzu’s citrus bite.
Bristol-based bartender Dee Davies designed Jinzu for Diageo’s Show Your Spirit competition back in 2013. Jinzu won the competition and, with its combination of clean freshness, subtle sweetness and creamy texture, has been a favourite ever since. Inspired by a trip to Japan, the spirit is an exceptionally-balanced meeting of East and West.

So excited that we were able to get this bottle from the Whiskey Exchange. It is not sold in the US but after trying it in Europe we had to have it. Its great with ice, tonic and add any fruit you like to enhance the flavor. Will definitely be ordering Jinzu again
I couldn't believe how exquisite the Jinzu tastes! We drank it iced and also with tonic water and a twist of line. Either way, it's a rare treat!
so crisp and refreshing i already ordered another bottle
A lovely change from the normal gins, will definitely be buying again.
