Ginkgo is described as a "true taste of Japan" because, unusually, it is produced from a selection of single malts from a number of Japan's distilleries.

Blended by Ichiro Akuto, formerly of Hanyu Distillery, and launched in Japan under the name Chrysanthemum, Ginkgo is a limited edition release of 1,000 12-bottle cases annually, 50 per cent of which will remain in the domestic market and 50 per cent distributed internationally under Number One Drinks Company.

Ginkgo is described as having a complex nose and spicy palate that makes a well-balanced, light and fresh aperitif or accompaniment to Japanese and other Asian foods.
