Two new awards to add to the mantle! Sakurao Gin Original has won “Best of Gin” at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition, a first for any Japanese gin. Read my recent review of Sakurao Original here!
Right behind that, Asahi has announced that Nikka Coffey Vodka has won a Gold at International Spirits Challenge. Coffey Vodka joins its Coffey-series brother Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky in getting an award from ISC.
Congratulations to both the Sakurao Distillery and Nikka Whisky!
