Nose : Cherry blossom and green tea provide a sweet and floral aroma.
Taste : Complex, multi-layered, yet harmonious flavour of various botanicals. Traditional gin taste in the base, plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes including yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit) as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.
Finish : The crisp Japanese Sansho pepper brings a little spiciness to the finish.
“Meaning ‘six’ in Japanese, Roku incorporates six traditional Japanese botanicals which are infused, distilled and blended by our Japanese artisans of Suntory Spirits in Osaka, Japan. Roku is carefully crafted with skilful precision and meticulous attention to detail to combine the eight traditional gin botanicals – juniper berry, coriander seeds, angelica root, angelica seed, cardamom seed, cinnamon, bitter orange peel and lemon peel – with our six traditional Japanese botanicals to create a perfectly balanced gin.
Roku can be enjoyed on the rocks or in a Japanese Gin & Tonic. Prepared with extra care, the Japanese Gin & Tonic is served with ice and slices of ginger to complement the refreshing and citrus top notes of yuzu. More than a simple gin & tonic, the Japanese Gin & Tonic reflects the spirit of Japanese hospitality, Omotenashi, and is a refreshing ritual to be enjoyed with friends.”
