Review: Sheringham Kazuki Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 20, 2020

Sheringham Distillery is located in Sooke B.C., a locale which overlooks the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Southern Vancouver Island. The name ‘Sheringham” is an homage to the name original name given to the area in 1846. When the first postal service arrived and the first Post Office was built, the name Sheringham was shortened to ‘Shirley’ so that it would fit properly on the postage stamp. (The Distillery was originally located at Shirley B.C which is about 20 minutes north of Sooke.)

The distillery produces two gins, Sheringham Seaside Gin which is a traditional juniper forward gin with a unique Island twist. They also produce the Kazuki Gin which brings an oriental flair to the Sheringham style. Sheringham Distillery also has an award winning Akvavit, and has began to bottle whisky as well (Red Fife, and Woodhaven).

The Modern Gin Cocktail

Sheringham Kazuki Gin is produced from B.C. grown white wheat and malted barley. Traditional botanicals are paired with Cherry blossom petals (imported from Japan) as well as premium yuzu peel,  and green tea leaves and flowers from Westholme Tea Farm in Cowichan Valley. It is meant to be a sort of East meets West gin with a mix of traditional and exotic botanicals.

Here is a link to my full Review:

Review: Sheringham Kazuki Gin

“… Alongside the juniper were spicy scents reminiscent of coriander and ginger which I suppose represent the tradition botanicals within Kazuki. However, there was also an exotic flair which evoked quite a response from my tasting group …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my serving suggestion, the Modern Gin Cocktail.

Chimo!
