The Kyoto Distillery's barrel-aged expressions are a running series, each matured in casks that previously held whisky from Japan's legendary Karuizawa whisky distillery. Closed forever in the early 2000s, Karuizawa's final stocks are slowly being released. Now ranked amongst the world's most collectible spirits, individual bottles continue to sell for remarkable prices.

Kyoto's ninth release sees the gin aged in an x Karuizawa sherry butt. Filled at a high strength, the gin was carefully monitored during the maturation to ensure the optimum balance between the botanical flavours and the influence of the wood.

Each release is scheduled for different markets. No.9 was originally exclusive to Sexy Fish in London and part of Asia with the outturn limited to 829 bottles. Contemporary Japanese presentation echoes the tradition of the Number One Drinks Company's Karuizawa series, and is designed in collaboration with the Kamiasobi Noh Troupe. This one depicts the Noh Mask “Yoroboushi”. 48% Alc./Vol. Very limited stocks.
