The harvest of four seasons capturing Japan’s beautiful nature

Sakura flower, Sakura leaf, Yuzu peel, Sencha tea (green tea), Gyokuro tea (refined green tea) and Sanshō pepper. Six Japanese botanicals cultivated over four seasons, carefully selected to create Roku, Japan’s authentic craft gin. Each botanical has been harvested at the peak of its season to extract the best flavor, then distilled to fully embody the blessings of nature. The harvest of the four seasons has been blended to create ROKU’s balanced flavor.

A Delicate Balancing Act

The art of drawing out unique flavors through distillation

Roku is produced in the Suntory Liqueur Atelier at Osaka Plant, a specialized craft distillery for Suntory spirits. The Atelier features four distinct types of pot stills, and in a process unique to Roku, the botanicals are distilled separately according to each feature to extract the best flavor and maintain their individual characteristics. For instance, the delicate scent of cherry blossom is drawn out through vacuum distillation in stainless pot stills, whereas the deep flavor of yuzu is achieved by distillation in copper pot stills. Roku’s complex yet harmonious flavor is the result of the unique Japanese sensitivity captured in the blending of the carefully crafted extracts of the 14 botanicals

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.
