in stock

In Japanese, Roku translates as the number six - a fact reflected by the distillery's use of six local botanicals including sakura leaf and flower, sencha and gyokuro tea, sansho pepper and yuzu peel.

Cherry blossom and yuzu provides a citrussy and floral aroma. To taste, there's a classic gin base plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes such as yuzu upfront and sansho pepper that brings a little spiciness to the finish. Serve with soda.

Key Flavours

"One of the stand out gins from Japan and quickly making a huge name for itself. The flavours speak for themselves while the design is beautiful, making Roku a really good gin to consider if you are looking for a gift, or special treat."

About this product

Four distinct types of pot stills are used to separately distil each of the 14 botanicals in order to best extract the best flavour and maintain their individual characteristics. The distillates are then blended together, to create the final gin.

The Torii Shoten Store, the predecessor of current company Suntory, opened in 1899 with the aim to “create original Japanese Spirits the whole world can enjoy, uniquely made from Japan’s nature and her people

Roku is made in Japan by Suntory, who have several distilleries across the country including the iconic Yamazaki, one of the nation's first and oldest malt whisky distilleries established in 1923.
