Sakurao Gin Limited recipe consists of 17 botanicals such as juniper berry, coriander seeds and cherry blossoms, but also lime, yuzu, bitter orange, summer orange, sweet orange, Hinoki cypress peel, green tea, red shiso, green shiso, pepper leaves, ginger, or wasabi root and oyster shells.
All the ingredients are exclusively harvested in the Hiroshima region to be delicately infused in order to extract the finest aromas, the resulting liquid is then distilled in small batches. But the peculiarity of this gin comes from its still production allowing two different methods; the addition of botanicals in neutral alcohol to be distilled and the maceration of botanicals in alcohol which has been continuously distilled.
The result is very attractive with a delicate nose lime and green tea flavor, then on the palate full of complexity with spicy aromas of wasabi and juniper berries to finish in a persistent finish with accents of orange marmalade.
