Nikka Coffey Gin
The excellence of Nikka’s Coffey distillates has been widely recognized through our Coffey Grain and Coffey Malt whiskies.
In 2017, a new gin and vodka joined Nikka’s Coffey range to further show the uniqueness and beauty of this traditional type of column still – the Coffey Still. These expressions are the integration of Nikka’s Coffey Stills, expertise in distilling gin and vodka since the 1960s and blending skills inherited from the founder.
Coffey Gin’s complexity is achieved through the perfect balance between 11 selected botanicals and the silky texture of Coffey distillates. The bright and zesty aroma originating from four kinds of Japanese citruses, Yuzu, Kabosu, Amanatsu and Shequasar, compliments the traditional gin botanicals of juniper berries, angelica, coriander seeds, lemon and orange peels.
There is also a touch of apples, a fruit deeply related to the history of Nikka, followed by pleasantly tangy hints of green Japanese Sansho pepper on the finish.

Lemon and orange build at first, suddenly peaking with a burst of lemon zest, and then shiso. Nikka Coffey Gin then abruptly takes a turn in the opposite direction. Lemon pith, bitter orange flesh and a touch of bitter tangerine all combine. Bold, zesty white and black peppercorn crunches and wormwood. Absolutely delicious.
