Sadō Gin

Sadō Gin “the Way of Tea”

Our journey starts with the unique Hojicha roasted green tea which originated in Kyoto, Japan over a hundred years ago.

In early 2019 during a trip to Japan we fell in love with Hojicha tea’s distinct taste and aroma. After searching Japan for the best quality Hojicha tea we found a small plantation in Okumikawa that produced a remarkable tea. Many of the tea trees on the farm are over 100 years old and they have made teas for the Emperor of Japan for almost 40 years.

After researching the best botanicals we created our recipe from eight of the finest: Juniper, Hojicha Tea, Orris Root, Coriander seeds, Elderflower, Sweet orange peel, Lemongrass and pink peppercorn.

This Gin has just won first place at the World 2021 Gin Awards for the Best English Signature Botanical

Tasting notes

Distillation of Sadō Gin takes place in small copper pot stills, 200 bottles at a time, in England. The gin is then reduced to 46% of alcohol to best showcase all the aromas and flavors it contains. You can enjoy Sadō Gin mixed in cocktails or simply with your favorite tonic water.

“The Hojicha tea from Japan is prominent but not overpowering, delivering distinctive green tea notes on the nose and palate, as well as contributing to the dryness of the finish. The tea flavor’s are layered with citrus, lemongrass, floral elderflower and pink pepper spice, which are well-balanced and harmonize with the tea notes for a contemporary profile. There’s structure and depth without being overcomplicated, and the mouthfeel is enjoyably smooth.”

The Gin Guide

Sadō Gin is fantastic straight up, but also in classic gin martinis with the twist. We also love it in Tom Collins, Negronis, Gin Fizzes, Mint Gimlets, French 75’s or even martini with Sadō Gin and sake. What’s Your Way?
