Kokoro Gin Announces UK Deal with Mangrove

Kokoro Gin, a Japanese-inspired London Dry Gin, has agreed an exclusive UK distribution deal with Mangrove, the specialist spirits agency.
The deal will see the gin being marketed to on-trade, off-trade, wholesalers, independents, supermarkets and other retailers through Mangrove’s network.
Kokoro was launched in September 2016, with its first batch selling out in two months. Its core ingredient, sansho berries, are hand-picked and imported to the UK from the Afan Woodland, a sustainable forest in the Nagano region of Japan. Used extensively in Japanese cuisine, sansho berries have a distinctive pepper flavour with a citrus aftertaste. Combined with eight other botanicals, the sansho berries give Kokoro Gin its unique flavour.
James Nicol, managing director at Forest Spirits, which produces Kokoro Gin, said: “Our deal with Mangrove will allow us to take Kokoro Gin to a larger market. We know that Mangrove only works with the highest quality products, so this is a perfect partnership. It is a significant step for us in growing the brand.”
Nick Gillett, managing director of Mangrove, said: “Kokoro Gin expands our gin selection, offering a point of difference for our customers. The addition of sansho berries produces a gin with oriental nuances, adding unique flavours compared to the traditional style of gin.”
Forest Spirits was formed by entrepreneurial duo, James Nicol and Barry Darnell. The brothers-in-law, who are financial consultant and design agency head by day, were inspired by a family connection to the Afan woodland in Japan, where sansho berries grow. James’s uncle, CW Nicol (affectionately known as Uncle Nic), is a lifelong environmentalist and author. He bought the Afan woodland in the 1980s and donated it to the Woodland Trust. It is now home to over 50 endangered species.
