The founder of Suntory, Shinjiro Torii, wanted to create original Japanese spirits the whole world can enjoy, uniquely made from Japan’s nature and her people. His legacy and dream lived on long after his death and now we experience and appreciate the perfection that more than 100 years of crafting and expertise can offer in a gin. Roku is Japanese for Six which refers to the six Japanese botanicals used.

Cherry blossoms, cherry leaves, green tea (sencha), refined green tea (gyokuro), sanshō pepper, and yuzu are utilized along with eight other traditional gin botanicals. Smooth and oily, the gin has a rich character as it coats the tongue. There’s a fleeting glimpse of cherry blossom and traditional notes before the tea and tannic notes take over. It is an ideal accompaniment to any dish with smoked salmon, and of course the traditional cucumber sandwich. It offers a refreshing beverage at outdoor gatherings.
