Hiroshima's Sakurao Distillery has announced a new Japanese craft gin called Sakurao Gin Hamagou. It's a limited run of 5000 bottles, and is slated to launch on September 3.
There are no details about the new gin yet available, but Hamagou is Japanese for roundleaf chastetree, so we can probably expect something more floral. The image also indicates it will use some botanicals from the island of Miyajima.
