Sakurao Limited Japanese Dry Gin
Sakurao // Japan
Unlike the brand's Original Dry Gin, Sakurao Limited Japanese Dry Gin only uses botanicals grown in Hiroshima. In addition to the nine Hiroshima-grown botanicals in the Original, they include: Japanese sakura (cherry blossoms), Japanese juniper berries, kuromoji (Japanese spicebush), kinome (Japanese pepper leaf), Hatsukaichi oyster shells, wasabi, juniper berry leaf, and ao shiso (green perilla).
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
