Sakurao Limited Japanese Dry Gin (700ml)

$145. 00 Bottle
$1740.00 Dozen
ABV: 47%
Tasting note: Chugoku Jozo is already fairly well known as the company behind the Togouchi brand of Japanese whiskies. They also oversee two gins produced at the Sakurao distillery employing seventeen botanicals from Hiroshima - these include cherry blossom, Japanese juniper (both leaves and berries), Hatsukaichi oyster shells and wasabi. Their 'Limited' edition is a delicately scented gin with an engaging mix of pine buds, citrus peel, ginger, wasabi and dry herbal notes. On the palate, it's soft at first, gathering intensity. Piney juniper and citrus peel add tang, but wasabi heat carries the finish. 47% Alc./Vol.
