Celebrating the six Japanese botanicals harvested at the peak of its season “shun”. Inspiring people to embrace the vitality of nature and the vibrance of the seasons.
In Japanese, Roku translates as the number six. Inside every bottle of Roku Gin, you will find six Japanese botanicals nurtured by the richness and diversity in Japan’s seasonality. The spring in Sakura flower and leaf, the summer in Sencha (green tea) and Gyokuro tea (refined green tea), the autumn in Sanshō pepper and the winter in Yuzu peel. Each botanical has been harvested at the peak of its season “shun” to extract the best flavour and distilled to fully embody the blessings of nature.
These represent Suntory’s commitment to only use the best ingredients harvested from the best growing areas in Japan.
Not only are Roku Gin’s ingredients of the highest quality, many are also uniquely Japanese and, therefore, best understood by Japanese artisans. Suntory’s mastery of this process is the result of extensive experience gained from making gin since 1936. Suntory developed its own multiple distillation process as a result of the special features each botanical brings to Roku Gin’s perfectly balanced mix.
