Kokoro Gin is a London Dry Gin distilled with nine botanicals, including fresh Japanese Sansho berries, imported from the Afan Woodland of Nagano prefecture, Japan. Sansho berries are used extensively in Japanese cuisine and have a distinctly earthy black pepper flavour with a piney citrus finish. The choice of botanicals was inspired by founder James’ uncle, the adventurer and explorer C.W. Nicol, known as Uncle Nic, who lives in the forest which he has helped restore and preserve for over 30 years. 10% of the profit from every bottle goes back to the Afan Woodland Trust to help continue his work.
