Craft gin is born to commemorate the 1st anniversary of the bar & dining “Stage” at the Tokyo Riverside Distillery! Limited sale at the 8 / 5-6 anniversary event!

Invented by bartenders and cooks: GIN that goes well with cocktails and has a refreshing dry gin taste.

Ethical Spirits Co., Ltd., a distillation venture that produces craft gin using waste materials with the motto "Distillation platform that realizes a circulating economy" (English notation: The Ethical Spirits & Co. / Headquarters: Taito-ku, Tokyo / CEO: Yuya Yamamoto / Esical Spirits) will hold an event to commemorate the 1st anniversary of Bar & Dining "Stage" on the 2nd floor of the regenerative distillery "Tokyo Riverside Distillery" operated by the company. It will be held on August 5th (Friday) and August 6th (Saturday).

At the same time, we produced a limited quantity of limited craft gin "Stage GIN" supervised by the bartender and cook of "Stage". It will be on sale at the "Essical Spirits Official Store" on the 1st floor of "Tokyo Riverside Distillery" for 2 days only. Even after the bottle sale ends, it will be offered as a special GIN that can be enjoyed only with "Stage".

  • The world's first regenerative distillery "Tokyo Riverside Distillery"
  • Esical Spirits Co., Ltd. obtained a spirits manufacturing license in January 2021 and built the third distillery "Tokyo Riverside Distillery" in Tokyo.

  • About "Stage GIN -1st Anniversary-"
  • The project was created from the idea of "let's make our own gin" on the occasion of the 1st anniversary by summarizing what the bartenders and cooks of "Stage" felt while telling customers directly about GIN every day. It was launched. While seeking advice from Ayumu Yamaguchi, the distillation manager of "Essical Spirits," we dared to create a craft gin with a new taste that is "not like Esical Spirits."

    Based on the neutral spirits of Ibaraki prefecture and the Kasutori shochu of Amabuki Shuzo in Saga prefecture, the scent of juniper, the aftertaste of citrus, and the sharpness of the taste. It's our own dry gin that we want you to drink first in "Stage".
    First, as a gin and tonic. If you don't like sweetness, it's delicious even with sonic (soda + tonic), and you can enjoy it more refreshingly by squeezing lime.

    For botanicals, we use deep spices such as juniper berries, domestic Valencia orange (produced in Wakayama prefecture), lemon, lime citrus scent, grains of paradise, angelica root and so on.

  • About ethical consumption of "Stage GIN"
  • (1) From the viewpoint of ethical consumption, Mr. Zenbei Farm's Valencia orange uses a lot of scratches. It looks bad with scratches, but the contents are ready to eat.

    (2) Lemon peel and lime peel use the surplus part (juice pomace, etc.) during Stage business.

    ③ We use the normally discarded shells of "Swimming Scallops" that are so fresh that they swim at Yamakiichi Shoten.

    ④ The label design is designed by the "Stage" members themselves. Alcohol ink art was applied using <head alcohol>, which is a non-drinkable part of the distillation process that is normally discarded.

    ⑤ Distillation residue will be handed over to the Kuramae Upcycling Project "Kuramae Coffee Project" and converted into compost.
