Following the domestic competition, SAKURAO GIN won the highest award “Best of Class” in the U.S. competition.

“SAKURAO GIN HAMAGOU” was awarded Gold at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition 2022. It was also awarded the “Best of Class”, given to the product with the highest score in each category. Following the “Best of Class” awarded in 2018, this is the second time for “SAKURAO GIN” to win the highest award in the competition.

This year, we are honored to receive the highest award following Superior Gold for “SAKURAO GIN ORIGINAL” at the Tokyo Wine & Spirits Competition, and we are very proud of the high recognition received worldwide.

We are grateful for all of the supports we have received from local farmers, agricultural and forestry unions, distillery production staff, still manufacturers, bartenders, and SAKURAO ambassadors who have stood by us through various challenges. Thanks to their supports, we are able to get the “Best of Class” and we will continue to innovate and create new possibilities.

Hamagou has been known for its beautiful fragrance from long ago. We have selected Hamagou from Miyajima and blended it with other botanicals, and distilled using a combination of steeping and vapor methods. You can enjoy this gin with a refreshing fragrance.
