Etsu Japanese Gin is one of the first Japanese Gins on the market. Etsu means "pleasure" in Japanese. This gin has been elaborated by the Asahikawa distillery in Hokkaido following an ancestral Asian recipe which requires various herbs, spices and citrus fruits, some of which can only be found in Asia (berries, peppers, citrus fruits...).
The particularity of Etsu gin lies in the persistence of orange peel and yuzu, this yellow citrus fruit very popular in Asia. Etsu is made from sugar cane alcohol which gives it a particular roundness. Botanicals such as yuzu, spices and herbs macerate for 24 hours before distillation.
The gin is reduced to 43° with spring water from the Taisetsu mountains.
