The term ukiyo refers to a state of mind emphasising living in the moment, detached from the difficulties of life.
Ukiyo Japanese spirits was born in Kagoshima in the shadow of the Sakurajima volcano, and are made from a base of locally grown rice that is masterfully distilled into traditional spirits.
Our Yuzu Gin is born from a base of locally grown barley that is distilled into a traditional shochu spirit. We redistill our shochu with juniper, yuzu, regional citrus and botanicals, respecting the 1500 year old tradition of cultivating and harvesting yuzu in Japan. The yuzu flavour is tart and fragrant, resembling that of the lemon and grapefruit, with overtones of mandarin orange.
