Roku Gin is the first Japanese gin from the Suntory distillery. Its name means "six" and refers to the six seasonal herbs it contains and thrives exclusively in Japan: Sakura flower, Sakura leaf, Yuzu peel, Sencha tea (green tea), Gyokuro tea (refined green tea) and Sansho pepper. In addition to the rare aromas of Japanese herbs, there are notes of citrus, cedar, cinnamon and coriander in its taste. Complex but also refined with floral flavours and spicy aftertaste.
When served with tonic this gin will deliver a scent of cherry blossoms and green tea with hints of floral-sweet notes. The sancho pepper provides a light spiciness on the finish.
