Sakaki XV Pure Japanese Craft Gin
Availability: In stock
The Sakaki Japanese Craft Gin Range is the the first series to use sakaki as a botanical. Sakaki is an evergreen tree that plays an important role in Japanese mythology, and it imparts a “foresty” flavour to the gin.
Labelled a “unifier botanical”, sakaki is the linchpin to this exceptional gin
Sakaki XV is an exception to a stereotypical Japanese gin – as opposed to floral and citrus dominant gins, Sakaki XV is woody and spice forward with a creative blend of 15 botanicals!
Base, spicy notes like allspice, cinnamon and caraway are pronounced. Juniper forward, the addition of Japanese plum and citrus botanicals results in a smooth, fruity finish.
