Kirker Greer Spirits has launched two expressions under a new Japanese gin brand.

Ukiyo Blossom Gin and Ukiyo Yuzu Gin, both unveiled today, are distilled in the Japanese prefecture of Kagoshima. The iterations are made with the same grains used to produce the Japanese spirit shochu, along with the addition of juniper, mandarin and spice.

The pair are available now for online purchase via retailers such as Amazon and Spiritly in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, Australia, Greece, France, Denmark, Sweden, Italy and Austria.

“We are delighted that there has been a huge demand for this product,” said Kirker Greer’s COO, John Soden. “Our customers are really intrigued by these truly unique spirits and feedback from the initial samples was phenomenal, not only on the taste but on the striking visual impact of the bottles too.”

The name ‘Ukiyo’ comes from the Japanese word for ‘floating world’.
