CHUGOKU JOZO Co. Ltd, founders of Togouchi, were themselves founded in 1918 in the town of Sakurao in Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima.
In 2018 they founded a new distillery in the heart of Sakurao (meaning Cherry Blossom in Japanese) where they have turned their 100 years of innovation experience to the creation of the first gin to come from the Hiroshima region.
Their skill is bringing innovation to traditional spirits and with Sakurao Gin they bring the best flavours of the East to one of the West's most-loved spirits.
They have created two gins - Sakurao Original, winner of a Gold (Best of Division) at the 2018 Los Angeles Spirit Awards and Sakurao Limited Edition Gin.
There are 14 botanicals in the Sakurao Original Gin, nine of which are harvested from the Hiroshima region, the other five are more traditional gin ingredients, such as juniper, coriander and angelica root.
Sakurao Limited Edition contains 17 botanicals locally sourced from the Hiroshima region.
