Senjo Gin

1866, toward the end of the Edo period, Matsujirou Kurogouchi and his family started a small sake brewery currently called Senjo named after Senjo Ga Take, a 3000-meter peak in the Japanese Alps. Today, 6th generation President Takashi Kurogouchi has expanded Senjo Brewery product line to include Senjo Sakura Craft Gin.

This is a blend of French Gin (made and distilled in France), Cherry blossom spirit made at the Kura, as well as Rice (Kome) shochu, also made at the Kura.
