Innovation from Tradition
From Hiroshima to the World
Our distilling master uses 100-years of distilling techniques and know-how to select only the best ingredients from Hiroshima to create SAKURAO GIN.
Our 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.
Our gin also uses cherry blossoms, known as sakura in Japanese, which is the symbol of Sakurao, where our distillery is located.
SAKURAO GIN has been distilled using traditional methods from England, the home of dry gin.
Craft gins proudly made in Hiroshima presented from SAKURAO DISTILLERY to the world.
