Since introducing a spirits category in 2007, the LAISC (Los Angeles International Spirits Competition) has judging distilled beverages. Each year an esteemed panel of judges use a blind-tasting method to award medals to the best spirits from around the world, maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism set 78 years ago by its partner wine competition.
We made this gin with the hope that we would really like people around the world to drink our gin. Appreciating cooperation with producers of botanicals and Hiroshima’s rich environment, we will keep doing our best!
