Gin 424 is the only handcrafted gin in the world made from four types of sweet potato shochu (distilled alcohol) derived from koji (the first, with floral and apple notes, is made by distilling yellow sweet potato and malted white rice; the second, with buttery and mushroom notes, is made by distilling yellow sweet potato and malted black rice; the third, with notes of yoghurt and wild berries, is obtained by distilling purple sweet potato and malted white rice; the fourth, with notes of caramel and vanilla, is obtained by distilling yellow sweet potato and malted white rice and has been aged in sherry casks.) This gives it a deep sweetness not found in other spirits.
Shochu is a traditional Japanese spirit distilled from koji (malted rice) and sweet potato.
Shochu is a very local liqueur and a unique spirit that is not widely available.
This vintage gin is made from sweet potato shochu, "imojochu" and exceptionally aromatic juniper berries.
This gin has an impressive deep flavor and sweetness derived from Imojochu, while retaining the structure of a gin.
We like the long, deep sweetness on the finish and the complex aromas, sweetness, woody notes.
This gin stands out for its cerebral profile with grassy, juniper and citrus notes and then a well-balanced and interesting palate.
It should be noted that only cedar trees over 80 years old are used in our craftsman's wooden stills. No nails are used and the cedar planks are fixed with bamboo strips.
You can smell a light cedar fragrance, a strong sweetness and umami, and a mellow alcohol quality.
