Benizakura Craft Gin 9148 n°0210 is an exclusive version created after the success of recipe n°3892 in which for the first time Japanese butterbur, called fukinoto in Japanese, was used.
The recipe n°0210 is bottled in a limited edition of 300 bottles, and consists of only two ingredients: juniper berries and butterbur harvested in Benizakura Park. This plant, which is one of the first to sprout under the snow, is one of the many mountain vegetables (sansai) in Japan and represents the arrival of spring.
Butterbur marks this gin with an amber color, but also with a refreshing taste and a more intense bitterness that goes particularly well with tempura (fried foods) or soba (Japanese noodles).
Benizakura Craft Gin 9148 n°0210 can be drunk on the rocks or with hot water, but also as a cocktail ingredient.

The brand Benizakura - Hokkaido Liberty Whisky
If Hokkaidō, the northernmost island of Japan, already had a well-established reputation for its whiskies with the historic distillery of Nikka, Yoichi, and the most recent distillery Akkeshi, it will now be necessary to add a know-how in the production of gin.
Inaugurated in mid-2018, the Benizakura distillery is located in Sapporo and produces craft gins using local ingredients such as lilac, lavender, kombu or even more surprising Shiitake mushrooms.
Created by Hokkaido Liberty Whisky Inc., the distillery takes its name from the park in which it is located. For its craft gin, the objective is that it "become a souvenir to bring back from your trip to Hokkaido", as Hidekuni Hayashi, CEO of the company, points out.
With Uisuki, the memory of Hokkaido comes directly to you without even having to travel to Sapporo. Note that, as the name of the company suggests, it is highly possible that a Japanese whisky might come out from the Benizakura’s still in the coming years. Whisky distillation may even have begun as far as we know…
Minerality that will remind you of a white wine such as Sancerre or Riesling
