Tenjaku Whisky USA has announced the national launch of Tenjaku Gin. Already available in 40 states, the gin is made with the maceration of over 10 Japanese botanicals including Yuzu, Peach, Green Tea and Japanese pepper, which are distilled London Dry style with some of the purest waters from the Mount Fuji basin. The water is extracted from 250 meters below the surface and filtered through porous volcanic rock. It is a craft gin that truly captures the aromas of Japan.
Tenjaku Gin has earned 93 points by the New York International Spirits Competition and been awarded the 2022 Japanese Distillery of the Year.
Tenjaku USA also announced the appointment of Nozomi Cruz to the position of Vice President Sales for its US operations reporting to Managing Director Craig Kodish. Mrs. Cruz is an industry veteran with over 16 years’ experience with Japan-based Sapporo.
In this newly created role, Cruz will be responsible for overseeing the development of the
Tenjaku Japanese Whisky and Gin portfolios effective June of 2022.
Tenjaku Whisky USA’s Kodish adds, “Having a veteran like Nozomi, whose specialty is
Japanese products, will add a strong dimension to Tenjaku’s growing portfolio. It is
rewarding to have seen Tenjaku grow at the rate it has in such a short period of time, and I am sure that Nozomi will add so much more to that growth.”
Tenjaku Gin and Tenjaku Whisky are imported into the United States by MHW, Ltd.in Manhasset, New York and supported by Route to Market, LLC sales agency.
