This I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of Roku Gin in the post!  Packaged beautifully and in a stunning bottle.

Check out the video where I am joined by resident gin connoisseur Jacob for a special tasting of Roku.

In Japanese, Roku translates as the number six. Inside every bottle of Roku Gin, you will find six very special botanicals that are sourced in Japan. These represent Suntory’s commitment to only use the best ingredients harvested from the best growing areas in Japan. Every aspect of Roku Gin is crafted by Japanese artisans with a centuries-old tradition of meticulous attention to detail.

Nose :   Cherry blossom and green tea provide a floral and sweet aroma.
Palate : 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.
