Horisumi x Archie Rose Distillery - Limited Series Gin Release WINTER - Authent/Ink

Horisumi – Winter is the second release in a series of four rare gins made in collaboration with acclaimed tattoo artist Kian Forreal (Horisumi), each inspired by a different Japanese season.

For this release, the hand-illustrated label depicts a snow-capped Mount Fuji, inky green pine branches and a hawk keeping watch beneath the glow of a full moon. It was this moody, atmospheric scene that informed the distillates that went into making this distinctive gin.

To capture all the crisp freshness of a Japanese winter in Horisumi – Winter, our distillers incorporated the maritime salinity of Tasmanian kombu, the herbaceous sweetness of Australian Fuji apples and, in a first for Archie Rose, the infusion of two Japanese green teas – aromatic sencha and savoury genmaicha. On the palate, you’ll notice a contrast between salty and sweet – a nod to the flavour elements found in Japanese cuisine.

To serve, try it with Fever Tree’s Elderflower Tonic, or accentuate its savoury kombu notes in a Dirty Martini.
