About Roku Gin

Introducing Roku Gin, a testament to the artistry and precision of Japanese craftsmanship. This exceptional gin is meticulously crafted with a selection of six unique Japanese botanicals, each representing a season in Japan. Embark on a journey through the Land of the Rising Sun with every sip of Roku Gin.

Little Known Fact

The name "Roku" is the Japanese word for "six," representing the six Japanese botanicals used in the creation of this exquisite gin. Each botanical is carefully harvested at the peak of its season to capture its true essence and bring harmony to the final blend.

Tasting Notes

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.

Cocktail Recipe Recommendation

Impress your guests with a Roku Gin & Tonic, a refreshing twist on a classic:

  • 2 oz Roku Gin
  • 4 oz premium tonic water
  • 1 slice of fresh ginger Fill a glass with ice, pour in Roku Gin and tonic water, and gently stir. Garnish with a slice of fresh ginger for an invigorating touch.

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.

Production Notes

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.
