A must for sauna lovers! "HOLON", a domestic craft gin that accompanies you during your "tonotou" time.

Craft gin to accompany you in time [HOLON]

 is a craft gin brand that stays close to the time of “totonoi” (recovery). For those who like saunas and understand the feeling of sauna, for time to read and think and for time to have a relaxed conversation with your loved ones this is a new type of alcoholic beverage that will accompany you during these relaxing moments.

Formulated with 9 types of herbs such as oriental herbs and spices that are friendly to modern people who are prone to stress and fatigue. You can enjoy a moment with alcohol like meditation.

The producer, Mr. REI, was inspired by Tibetan Buddhism, and was born from the desire to deliver the charm of 'Oriental philosophy' in the form of a 'food experience' that everyone can enjoy.

This time, we will introduce the charm of  HOLON,

Craft gin that can combine botanicals infinitely

Originally made in monasteries as a medicinal liquor, gin was a distilled liquor made by pickling various spices and herbs, mainly juniper berries. Therefore, the combination of herbs is infinite. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of craft gins that contain ingredients that are unique to the region, in addition to traditionally used ingredients.

It is also called "drinkable perfume" due to its richness and individuality. The maker can design the top note, middle note, and last note, so it is gaining popularity due to its flexibility.

The fragrance is made with herbs and spices that have been used in the East for centuries, and the underlying Buddhist and Zen philosophy of the Japanese people is captured in the bottle as an "experience".

Selecting ingredients that are the source of fragrance with members of International Chinese Medical Dietitian

The ingredients used in  HOLON were selected together with members of an international Chinese medical dietitian who is familiar with the relationship between food and the body, which has been passed down in the East since ancient times. The product contains 12 botanicals that are gentle to a tired body and are mainly ingredients that they want busy modern people to consume.

The scent of plants that makes you want to take a deep breath

When you take a sip, you'll be greeted with aromas of cinnamon and pandan leaf, known as oriental vanilla, followed by a slightly spicy and oriental sweetness, and a refreshing aftertaste of rosemary and Taiwanese pepper.

It is a gin that is not meant to get you drunk, but to help you "totonou" (revitalized).

Purity: pandan leaf, juniper berry
Relaxation: Linden, Hanamas
Meguri: Angelica Root, Cinnamon, Margao, Rosemary
