Etsu Orange Japanese Gin and Etsu Yuzu Gin are distilled at the Akita Distillery, in the Akita prefecture of Japan in the Honshu Island. Akita Prefecture is located on the coast of the Sea of Japan and extends east to the Ōu Mountains, the longest mountain range in Japan. It is these mountains that Etsu Double Orange and Etsu Double Yuzu take their fresh and light aromas from.
Etsu Double Orange Gin and Etsu Double Yuzu have been macerated for seven days using traditional botanicals. After maceration, only the gin is distilled without the botanicals, which allows the oils to infuse.
Only after the distillation process is fresh water from the mountain source added, which gives these gin their fresh taste.
