About Nikka Coffey Gin
Asahi Breweries released the “Nikka Coffey Gin,” a domestic product, in June 2017. It is flavored, among other things, with “yuzu” citrus fruit and “sansho” Japanese pepper. Its production process uses a whisky still that was introduced by Masataka Taketsuru (1894-1979), the founder of The Nikka Whisky Distilling Co., an Asahi Breweries group company. Gin and whisky are made in similar ways until halfway through their manufacturing methods.
The process has helped extract the ingredients’ natural flavors and has also created a light mouth feel, company officials said.
