Komasa Gin Sakurajima Komikan Review

This Japanese gin is made with a peculiarly small local variety of mandarin (Sakurajima komikan), which is native to Kagoshima in the south of the country. The fruit grows on an active volcano, and lends a juicy punch to this gin's nose and palate. Juniper and coriander bring a balancing savory contrast, and all three ingredients are clearly defined from first sniff to final sip. Enjoy in shaken, citrus-forward cocktails. 

(Note: The price listed is for 375-milliliter bottles.)
