The word 'ETSU' translates to 'pleasure'. Etsu Double Orange Gin is distilled at the Akita Distillery in Akita Prefecture, Japan, on the island of Honshu. Akita Prefecture lies on the coast of the Sea of Japan and extends east to theOu Mountains, the longest mountain range in Japan, from which Etsu Double Orangetakes its fresh and bright aroma. The gin is macerated for seven days with traditional botanicals such as Japanese bitter orange, juniper berries, licorice root, angelica and coriander. After maceration, only the gin is distilled without the botanicals to allow the oils to develop. Only after distillation is fresh water from the mountains added, giving this gin its fresh taste. Etsu Double Orange Gin is fresh and fruity, with natural ingredients that give this gin a unique and light finish. Tasting notes:Color: Clear. Nose: Oranges, yuzus, lemons.
