Unfortunately, the papers and visit cards I took during this visit were thrown away, and now I can’t remember the name of the distillery or of the Gin itself. This Gin from the Akori team is inspired by the Japanese Cherry Blossom (if you hadn't guessed from the name) and is made using a ice based spirit, however is produced within Barcelona. In a tradition known as ‘Hanami’ the people head out to celebrate the cascading of these blooms and the change of season. Of course, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many nature lovers don't have the chance to visit the blooms in person this year, but that doesn't mean you can't still bring some cherry blossom magic into your own home — cocktail style.This 20% abv liqueur is distilled in traditional copper stills and bottled in packaging featuring a similarly traditional design. abv gin as “punchy” with a citrus kick and herbal finish, accompanied by lemon and grapefruit botanicals directly from the Mediterranean. Akori Cherry Blossom is the result of a potent combination of rice based grain alcohol, juniper and Japanese inspired botanicals.

The resulting flavours are Refreshing Summery Citrus notes with hints of a Spicy Ginger and finished off with a Sweet Floral Cherry Blossom which lingers in the mouth. Although it can be enjoyed neat, this spirit is best served with a slice of apple or even better, candied blossom, according to Davies. In Japan, there’s a fleeting period during spring when the sakura (cherry) blossoms are in full bloom.However, the spirits company Destilerias Company actually takes its cue from the Far East for this gin, adding typical Japanese botanicals such as dragon fruit, kumquats and ginger. One of two liqueurs in the festival range, the 20% abv raspberry variant takes the libationary tour north to Scotland.
