 Japan exported 3,714 kiloliters of gin between January and October in 2021 worth about 2.57 billion yen ($22 million)

Quite high, I guess. But for comparison, the UK consumes about 50 million liters (50,000 kiloliters) of gin per year. In 2019, gin exports from the UK were worth US$872.7m.

Never tried Japanese Gin before, but with the qualify of the local Whisky maybe it is time to see if the popularity is well founded.

Kinobi Gin that is distilled in Kyoto is a great tipple.
