Roku Gin is the first premium Japanese craft gin in the Beam Suntory’s portfolio. Meaning “six” in Japanese, Roku incorporates six traditional Japanese botanicals infused, distilled and blended by the Japanese artisans of Suntory Spirits in Osaka, Japan. With history dating back to 1899, Suntory has earned its reputation as one of Japan’s most awarded spirits producers, mastering the skill of making gin since 1936.
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.
