LITTLE JOY SPIRITS is a craft gin born from a collaboration between Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Japan and Ethical Spirits. It is named after the spirit of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, "Little Joy," and represents the cycle of smiles created by Ross Donuts. Please enjoy this "small initiative" towards the realization of a circular economy that accumulates moments of smiles.

The rosé dough for the donuts is not distilled as is, but is first baked to make a biscuit, and the rosé glaze is caramelized to bring out its sweetness and aroma.

In addition, citrus fruits such as shikuwasa and orange are used as botanicals, subtly recreating the gentle sweetness of Krispy Kreme's most popular signature donut, the Original Glazed®, which spreads in your mouth, while creating a refreshing drink that is perfect for summer nights.

While KKDJ was exploring what they could do to address the social issue of food waste, they came across Ethical Spirits, a company that has upcycled a variety of materials and distilled ethical gin, which led to this collaboration.
This collaboration began with LITTLE JOY SPIRITS, which was created by upcycling the dough and glaze from "Original Glazed®," which has been made with the same recipe since 1937. We hope to continue the cycle of smiles that come from donuts.
