Unveiling the Essence of Japan: A Deep Dive into Sakuro Japanese Dry Gin

Introduction:

Embark on a captivating journey to the heart of Japan with Sakuro Japanese Dry Gin, a meticulously crafted spirit that boasts a symphony of unique botanicals. This exceptional gin transcends the boundaries of the ordinary, offering a vibrant exploration of flavours native to Hiroshima.

Distilling Heritage and Local Bounty:

Sakurao Distillery, nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Hiroshima, brings over a century of distilling expertise to the creation of Sakuro Gin. Their dedication to quality is evident in the meticulous selection of ingredients. Nine meticulously chosen botanicals, sourced directly from Hiroshima's fertile grounds, form the core of this gin. These include:

  • Fresh Citrus: Bursting with zesty vibrancy, yuzu, lemon, and grapefruit lend a bright and invigorating character to the gin.
  • Japanese Cypress: A touch of earthiness and a hint of peppery spice emerge from this unique botanical, adding a layer of complexity.
  • Oyster Shell: Contributing a subtle minerality and a touch of salinity, oyster shells enhance the gin's depth and smoothness.
  • Cherry Blossom: The essence of Japan itself, cherry blossoms, add a delicate floral note and a hint of sweetness.

A Marriage of Tradition and Innovation:

The brilliance of Sakuro Gin lies in the masterful combination of traditional and contemporary techniques. The gin is crafted in small batches using a hybrid copper still. This allows for the utilisation of both steeping and vapour infusion methods. Juniper berries and coriander seeds, the hallmarks of classic gin, are joined by the symphony of Hiroshima's botanical bounty, resulting in a spirit that is both familiar and refreshingly novel.

Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: The initial aroma of Sakuro Gin is a captivating interplay of citrus. Yuzu takes centre stage, offering a burst of sunshine-like vibrancy. Hints of lemon and grapefruit add a touch of complexity, while the subtle earthiness of Japanese cypress peeks through. As the aroma unfolds, a delicate floral note emerges, reminiscent of cherry blossoms.
  • Palate: The first sip delivers a burst of freshness, mirroring the citrus explosion on the nose. The yuzu shines through, balanced by the gentle sweetness of cherry blossom. Underlying this vibrancy is a subtle earthiness from the Japanese cypress, beautifully complemented by a hint of minerality from the oyster shells. The juniper and coriander seeds, the cornerstones of gin, provide a familiar structure, ensuring the spirit remains grounded in its heritage.
  • Finish: The finish of Sakuro Gin is long and lingering. The citrus notes slowly fade, leaving behind a touch of peppery spice from the Japanese cypress and a hint of oyster shell minerality. The delicate sweetness of cherry blossom offers a lasting impression, creating a desire for another sip.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Classic Gin & Tonic: Appreciate the inherent brilliance of Sakuro Gin in its simplest form. Combine 50ml of Sakuro Gin with a high-quality Indian tonic water in a copa glass filled with ice. Garnish with a twist of grapefruit or a sprig of fresh mint to accentuate the citrus notes.
  • Sakura Sour: For a taste of Japan in every sip, try the Sakura Sour. Combine 50ml of Sakuro Gin, 20ml fresh lemon juice, 15ml simple syrup, and 10ml egg white in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
  • Japanese Highball: Experience the refreshing essence of Sakuro Gin in a Japanese Highball. Combine 50ml of Sakuro Gin with high-quality Japanese soda water in a highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with a twist of yuzu for an authentic Japanese touch.
