ARTEL's Sakura Gold (SAK) Double Old Fashioned and Highball

ARTEL's Sakura Gold (SAK) Double Old Fashioned and Highball


Introduced in 2011

In Japan cherry blossoms symbolize good fortune and are also an emblem of love, affection and represents spring – it is with this in mind that ARTĚL presents the Sakura collection. Its flowers are nearly pure white, tinged with the palest pink and the creation of this collection requires a painstaking seven-step process. After each piece is mouth-blown it is cased with a second layer of white crystal, the Sakura flowers are then created by sandblasting off almost the entire layer of white crystal with only the white blossoms and branches remaining. Next each piece is acid etched to give it a pearl finish, and each blossom hand-engraved. Lastly, each blossom and branch is hand-painted. The result is a design that blends the traditional with the modern to create another signature ARTĚL design.

Sakura is available in Sakura Gold (SAK) and Sakura Purple (SK2)
