Roku gin is the first gin from Japan’s legendary Suntory distillery. Japanese craftsmanship brings out the rich flavors of ROKU.
The gin is used with natural ingredients which means that every bottle is unique. Each blend is tested for flavour, strength and consistency each time. Our unique blend of botanicals are hand mixed and stepped to create the perfect balance of flavours.
Following that fresh water is lightly filtered through the blend to add a crisp, clear, finish to the wild, bold, flavour our gin is known for.

Taste: Complex, multi-layered, yet harmonious flavour of various botanicals. Traditional gin taste in the base, plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes with yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit) as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.
