About Kokoro Gin
British gin with a Japanese heart!
Kokoro Gin is a Japanese-inspired gin created with organic Sansho berries, which are hand-picked in the Afan Woodland in the Japanese Alps.
The berries grow wild in the Afan Woodland in the Japanese Alps, where C.W.Nicol (aka Old Nic) introduced them to his nephew James in 2014. James immediately recognised the zingy combination of citrus and pepper was the perfect complement for gin, and Kokoro was born.
The Sansho berry is a star of the Kokoro gin. This small berry is what gives Kokoro its distinctive flavour. A citrusy zing balanced by a warm and peppery finish. It’s the soul of the forest, at the heart of our gin - Kokoro Gin.
The berries are picked by hand at the start of the season when they are at their freshest, flash froze and packed in dry ice back to the UK, where along with 7 other botanicals they are distilled into Kokoro gin and gin liqueurs.
The Bottle of Forestial Heart - Kokoro Gin
The electrifying zing of Sansho berries provide the backbone for the flavour, but it is the careful balance of juniper, lemon peel, sweet orange, almond, angelica root, liquorice, savoury and coriander seeds that provide the ying for yang.
These are the unsung heroes of our story; the delicate botanicals that enrich and enhance the experience; the sublime subtleties that transport you to the heart of the forest.
And that’s exactly why they called their gin Kokoro: it means ‘heart’ in Japanese. Not the literal, beating heart, but the soul and essence of a place.
10% of every bottle sold goes back to the Afan Woodland Trust to ensure this magical place never loses its soul.
Except for the smooth and delicate Kokoro London Dry Gin, the range of tantalizing gin liqueurs is available:
- Kokoro Gin Liqueur Yuzu and Ginger
- Kokoro Gin Liqueur Cherry Blossom
