Today sees the release of not one but two new Japanese craft gins! Akayane continues their quarterly releases of the Craft Gin Heart series. This time the fall and winter editions being released simultaneously, completing the series. Oddly, both of them seem to use the same botanicals:
- Hen of the woods
- Sweet potato
- Juniper berry
Sounds strange saying it, but these could be quite mushroom-forward gins?
While we're at it, we may as well also mention that Akayane has a vodka coming this month called Akayane Premium Vodka. Being another white spirit, it should compliment their gins and absinthe. Personally I expect Japanese vodka to become a bit of a thing during 2019.
