The House of Suntory from Osaka has been producing the spirit since 1936. Roku means the number six in Japanese, which is a lucky number in Japan. Roku’s flavor profile is made up of the combination of the six Japanese botanicals yuzu peel, sakura flower, sakura leaves, sencha tea, gyokuro tea and sansho pepper with eight traditional gin ingredients.

The Japanese botanicals used are harvested individually according to the “SHUN” principle in the right season and at their optimal maturity, when they have reached their perfect taste, and then distilled individually in different pot stills. In this way, the aroma of each botanical can be extracted in the best possible way.

Created by Japanese masters with attention to detail, the result is a complex and harmonious gin, soft and velvety on the palate.

Alcohol content: 43% by volume, Bottle size: 0.7 L

Roku Perfect Serve: Roku & Tonic

Roku tastes best over ice or as a unique Japanese Gin & Tonic.

Prepared with particular care, the Japanese gin & tonic is served with ice cubes and ginger sticks, which particularly emphasizes the refreshing, dominant yuzu note. The preparation is based on the “Spirit of Omotenashi” – the deep connection between guest and host – and is a refreshing ritual that should be shared with friends.
