Sheringham Kazuki Gin
Established in 2015, the Vancouver Island-based Sheringham Distillery has already amassed numerous honours for its range of spirits. Most recently, their Seaside Gin was named Best Contemporary Gin in the World at the 2019 edition of the prestigious World Gin Awards. Sheringham is the brainchild of Jason and Alayne MacIsaac. The husband-and-wife team adhere to meticulous small-batch distilling methods, uses 100-percent B.C. agricultural products, and sources other ingredients from Vancouver Island whenever possible.
This is how the distillery describes the Kazuki Gin - "Kazuki Gin was born out of love of both Eastern and Western botanicals and gin making techniques. Alayne fell in love with Cherry Blossoms while living in Asia and Jason became intrigued with Yuzu as a professional chef. KAZU, meaning “harmony”, is the blending and respect for both East and West cultures. KI means “radiance” and is an ode to the radiant flavours of the botanicals as they dance on your palette. Cherry blossom petals and yuzu peel were imported from Japan. From Westholme Tea Farm we procured green tea leaves and flowers. Expect dynamic flavours from start to finish with the unique essence the Kazuki provides. Made from our Vodka, with botanicals sourced locally and from Japan, including Japanese Cherry Blossoms and Green Tea + Flowers from Westholme Tea Farm in Cowichan Valley."
