In the land of the rising sun and the mindful reflection lies a forest of exceptional distinction and curiosity. It is here amongst the ‘sclusive sights and smells and sounds of significance that a man of infinite resource and sagacity – known most fondly as Uncle Nic – acquired a recurring taste for the Sansho berry. “Fortuitously pepperascial,” nibbled the words off his tongue. “With a uniquely citronious note.” And it was these insatiable desirabilities that Uncle Nic knew would give his family gin – known most fondly as Kokoro – such an exquisitely unique flavouring.
Kokoro is a London Dry Gin distilled with eight botanicals and fresh Sansho berries, imported from sustainable sources in the Afan Woodland of Nagano prefecture, Japan. Sansho berries are used extensively in Japanese cuisine and have a distinctively earthy black pepper flavor with a piney citrus aftertaste. Close your eyes and think of the forest – that’s where our heart is.
