A gin with a big splash of class. This Roku Gin is a Japanese craft gin from the House of Suntory. Six locally sourced botanicals sing alongside eight traditional botanicals in this complex gin, with top notes of yuzu citrus and a kick of sansho pepper to keep you on your toes. These combine with juniper berries, coriander, lemon peel, and a host of Japan-specific herbs to create a gin that you can really dig your tastebuds and teeth into. Arriving in a perfectly splendid summer flower bag, this is a special gift for someone special, or in our eyes, a fantastic opportunity for some elegant self-care.
On the nose lies coriander, and a citrus kick. The palate is full of floral notes, sweet tea leaves, lemon, and a dried herb presence. The finish is dry, with a lovely kick of pepper spice. Divine.
