mitosayaの敷地には、大きく育ったニッケイの木が3本あります。セイロンニッケイの樹皮から採れるシナモンに対して、ニッキの原料にもなる日本のニッケイは「シナニッケイ」と呼ばれる品種で、シナモンの甘い風味に加えて、シャープな爽やかさがあるのが特徴です。

シナモンといえば樹皮の部分のイメージですが、葉っぱからも甘いシナモンの香りがします。

葉の葉脈が縦に三本入っているのも他の木にはない個性で、一言でいうならお洒落。そんなニッケイの、間伐した時の葉と枝を使ったスピリッツです。

シナモンを純化したような深いコクと甘み、若干のスモーキーさ。葉ゆえの青みも感じます。ほのかなフルーティさは、ブレンドしたレモングラスのスピリッツによるもの。

レモングラス由来の爽やかな柑橘とグリーンハーブの香り、ニッケイの甘い部分だけを抽出したような味わいがあとに残ります。

爽やかで飲みやすいので、少し冷やしてストレートでどうぞ。

There are three large Nikkei trees on the mitosaya property. While cinnamon is extracted from the bark of the Ceylon cinnamon tree, the Japanese cinnamon tree, from which Nikki is made, is called "Cinnamomum chinense" and is characterized by its sweet cinnamon flavor with a sharp, fresh taste.

Although the image of cinnamon is that of the bark, the leaves also have a sweet cinnamon aroma.

The three vertical veins on the leaves are also unique to this tree and, in a word, fashionable. This spirit is made from the leaves and branches of such Nikkei when they are thinned.

It has a deep richness, sweetness, and a slight smokiness as if it were purified cinnamon. There is also a hint of greenness due to the leaves. The subtle fruity character is due to the lemongrass spirit blended in.

The fresh citrus and green herbal aroma from the lemongrass and the taste of only the sweet part of the Nikkei leaves a lasting impression.

Refreshing and easy to drink, it is best served slightly chilled and straight.
