Roku Gin is the first of its kind, originating from Japan’s legendary Suntory – Roku Gin. This expression of gin is made using a selection of botanicals, including six Japanese botanicals that provide a whistle-stop tour of the four seasons.
These four seasons include the beautiful sakura leaf and sakura flower for spring, sencha tea and gyokuro tea for summer, sansho pepper for autumn and yuzu peel for winter.
Traditional gin botanicals also featured include the likes of juniper, orange peel, lemon peel, coriander and cinnamon, among others.
One of the most popular mixing gins, Roku Gin is bold and strikingly bitter – which makes it a rather challenging mixing gin. Although unusual in traditional applications like the Gin and Tonic, the Ramos Gin Fizz or the Gimlet, as a gin on its own, it is enjoyed by many neat and is rated as one of the best types of gin.
