THE JAPANESE CRAFT GIN
Available at Rockingham Arms from 6th May. Don't miss out!
The Torii Shoten Store, The predecessor of Suntory, opened in 1899 as a result of the dream of young Shinjiro Torii, who at the age of 20 wanted to "create original Japanese Spirits the whole world can enjoy, uniquely made from Japan's nature and her people.
Roku gin is the first gin from Japan’s legendary Suntory distillery. Japanese craftsmanship brings out the rich flavors of ROKU.
ROKU contains six unique Japanese botanicals harvested in accordance with “shun”, the moment of the peak flavour. These six botanicals are steeped and distilled before being carefully blended together with 8 traditional gin botanicals – juniper, coriander seed, angleica root, angelica seed, cinnamon toto, cardamom seed and bitter orange peel.
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.
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 (Japanese citrus fruit) as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.
Finish: The crisp Japanese sansho pepper brings a little spiciness to the finish.
