Yuzu is a yellow citrus fruit with a tart juice, commonly used by chefs to flavour both savoury and sweet dishes. It’s known for its role in the popular Japanese Ponzu sauce and is also made into vinegar. The yuzu orchards and fruit-soaked baths of Japan’s alpine region set the scene for this spirit. Its creation involves cold and pot distillation to extract the yuzu and sencha green tea keynotes. The result is a light bodied, fresh and natural spirit akin to a flavoured vodka, less the confected sweetness of some brands. The pleasantly tart character of the citrus is captured alongside hints of ginger and jasmine adding warmth and complexity. The flavours lose definition with minimal dilution, but on the flipside, you could sip this straight. Keep it simple with a few cubes of ice and a slice of lemon. 35% Alc./Vol.
