YUZU wins GOLD Medal at 2019 IWSC


...that is, if we believe the jury of the prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC), who has just awarded one of the highest honors to Île Four Yuzu!

We are extremely proud of receiving this great honor! It is a great validation of the whole reason that we – two Japanophile friends and a Japanese brother in law who just happened to be a Sake-expert – have created ÎLE FOUR (the ‘four islands of Japan’) a few years ago: to popularize Super Premium Sake and beautiful, fruit-based Aperitifs from Japan that were largely unknow in the West!

Our ÎLE FOUR YUZU, which just received this Gold medal, is our most favored aperitif, based on the yuzu citrus fruit that has been growing in Japan for more than 1000 years. Extracted in a complicated and expensive process from pulp and rind, Yuzu has a truly exceptional and intense flavor. The complex Yuzu aroma is utterly unique and its fresh citrus scent and the absence of the astringent acid of the lemon combine into an inimitable arrangement of sweet, bitter, salty and sour. In combination with premium Sake Yuzu turns into a uniquely refreshing aperitif – simply pour over lots of crushed ice and enjoy on the terrace, the pool or to start a good meal! If you feel more adventurous, mix an innovative cocktail – look for recipes and more information on or contact us at
