Roku Gin

The Japanese Craft Gin

Roku Gin celebrates the exceptional flavors of each of Japan’s four seasons at their peak. Meticulously crafted from 6 unique Japanese botanicals picked at the height of freshness, Roku delicately balances a subtle spiciness with vibrant floral notes, gentle sweetness from green tea and Yuzu’s cherished citrus character. Every sip of Roku offers a taste of the best of every season, inviting you to pause and savor the richness of nature’s gifts.

Experience Nature’s Moments at Their Peak

Every season offers ephemeral moments bursting with flavors to share with those around us. Roku Gin celebrates these moments using six Japanese botanicals from each of the four seasons picked at peak freshness. In Japan, this appreciation of seasonal flavors and nature at its apex is known as “Shun”. 

The delicate combination of Sakura flower and Sakura leaf from spring, Sencha tea (green tea) and Gyokuro tea (refined green tea) from summer, Sanshō pepper which ripens in autumn and Yuzu peel from winter captures the essence of Shun in a bottle, inviting you to savor the seasons all year round.

A design capturing the spirit of Japan

The Roku Gin bottle is designed to reflect the aesthetics of Japan, with the six natural Japanese botanicals embossed on the hexagonal bottle symbolizing Roku – which means ‘six’ in Japanese.

The bottle label is printed on washi paper, further highlighting Japanese craftsmanship, while the bold calligraphy running across the label emphasizes this feeling.

Immerse Yourself in the Sound of Shun

“Shun” is a celebration of the moments when plants are at the peak of perfection – the same moment when Roku’s six botanicals are harvested. World-renowned composer Aska Matsumiya took inspiration from the recorded electrical signal of each of Roku’s botanicals, creating two delicate compositions which celebrate the cherished moments of all four seasons in Japan. Representing the sounds of shun in song, the compositions help you sense the seasons and appreciate nature’s vitality in a new light.
