Sakurao Gin Limited Edition

The Sakurao Gin is crafted using 100-years of distilling techniques and know-how to select only the best ingredients from Hiroshima. The botanicals produce a wide variety of aromatic notes, including citrus such as the florid-smelling lemon and the rich fragrance of yuzu, as well as aromas from Japanese cypress and oyster shells. The gin also uses cherry blossoms, known as sakura in Japanese, which is the symbol of Sakurao, where the distillery is located.

In addition to juniper berries, this Limited Edition Gin also utilizes a total of 17 specially selected botanicals that feature the riches of the land and sea from Hiroshima. The gin is distilled using a combination of steeping and vapour method, which is a traditional method from England, the home of dry gin.

Some of the interesting botanicals include:
  • Kuromoji - It has a deeply sweet and spicy scent that accents the gin
  • Kinome - An impactful Japanese ingredient that makes it possible to feel a spicy kick when tasting the gin
  • Oysters - Oysters that have been raised in waters near the distillery. The shell of this oyster is used to add saltiness to the gin
  • Wasabi - It adds a piquant, Japanese spiciness to the gin
  • Green perilla - Works to intensify the aroma of juniper berries and juniper berry leaves.
