Roku Gin70cl / 43%
A complex Japanese gin with refreshing yuzu citrus top notes and a spicy shansho pepper twist. Roku means 'six' in Japanese and refers to the six local, seasonal botanicals which complement eight traditional gin botanicals (juniper berries, coriander, lemon peel, etc) and give this spirit a distinctly Japanese character.
The Japanese botanicals are: sakura flower (cherry blossom), sakura leaf, sencha tea, gyokuro tea, sansho pepper and yuzu peel.
Try serving this in a gin and tonic with a ginger garnish, which accentuates the citrus notes.

Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: Cherry blossom and green tea provide a floral and sweet aroma.
Taste: Complex, multi-layered, yet harmonious flavour of various botanicals. Traditional gin taste in the base, plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes with yuzu as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.
Finish: The crisp Japanese sansho pepper brings a little spiciness to the finish.

Awesome gin. Very smooth and complex. Very well priced. I am certain as it becomes more popular price will rise. Highly recommend!!
Smooth, fragrant, delicious on ice. Why dilute it with anything it's that good.
One of the best gins I have ever tried. Quality and price are well balanced. As in all the Japanese handcrafted products you can notice the special detail for the perfection looking for the total customer satisfaction. Can be enjoyed alone without the necessity of mixing with tonic. Very smooth and tasty. I recommended it.
