Roku Gin captivates the senses with its delicate and complex profile. The aroma is an enchanting blend of cherry blossoms, green tea, and yuzu citrus. On the palate, expect a silky-smooth texture with notes of sansho pepper, sencha tea, and a hint of sweet fruitiness, followed by a lingering and refined finish.

Recommended by Christian “Suzu” Suzuki-Orellana, creator of the Ichi-Go-Ichi-E and selected as a recommended spirit to pair with Shaker & Spoon’s Ginspirations Box.
“I really enjoy Roku Gin for its subtle complexity. The pepper and slight ginger notes pair well with winter-driven ingredients, whereas the florality of the gin also softens those spicy notes. Roku is the perfect balance for building a cocktail where softer flavors can shine,” says Christian “Suzu” Suzuki-Orellana. With an unparalleled soft roundness and subtle sweetness, Roku offers aromas of cherry blossoms and green tea that moves to a complex, multilayer palate of various botanicals, including yuzu, and finishes with crisp sansho pepper for a little spiciness.
Roku Gin is crafted at the Suntory-owned Yamazaki Distillery, a pioneer in Japanese spirits. The six Japanese botanicals, along with eight traditional gin botanicals, are individually distilled using a unique "split basket" method in a copper pot still. This process ensures that each botanical's distinct flavor profile is preserved before being expertly blended into Roku Gin.
