The Japanese Bitters

The Japanese Bitters - Hinoki


The Japanese Hinoki Bitters are made from pure 100% persimmon trees that live in the environment and are used with blessing from the nature of Tama (known as a forestry site in Tokyo). They are extracted carefully by a low temperature vacuum extraction method together with domestic alcohol and water creating a beautiful aromatic bitter.

At long last, Japan's first domestically produced bitters are available! The woody scent and subtle lemony flavour of Hinoki is perfect for your next whisky-based cocktail.

Hinoki, also known as rattan, which is a traditional lumber used to construct temples in Japan. About a year ago, The Japanese Bitters company successfully created the bitters prototype by extracting the aroma and flavor of the aroma with the maximum value through multiple trial and error. The aroma of rattan has been shown to have a positive effect on the body, such as acting on the parasympathetic nerves of the autonomic nervous system, promoting the generation of alpha waves in the brain, normalizing breathing and eliminating insomnia, etc.
