Roku Gin Sakura Bloom Edition

The first release in the Seasonal Festival Collection, the Roku Gin Sakura Bloom Edition is crafted to capture the essence of Sakura in bloom, a fleeting phenomenon that transforms Japan into a sea of color and delicate fragrances each spring. Lasting only two weeks, the Sakura bloom is enjoyed at its peak by millions of Japanese people in a ritual known as Hanami, or ‘flower viewing’. Taking inspiration from the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossom, this special edition Roku Gin harnesses the brightness and freshness of Sakura for you to enjoy year-round. The blossom imparts an elegant floral taste layered with hints of saltiness, underpinned by a delicately complex blend of botanicals that enhances this Japanese gin’s natural flavors. This limited edition bottling is the first in a series which celebrates Japanese festivals inspired by “Shun” – the sensibility of enjoying seasonal moments at their peak.

Roku Gin Sakura Bloom Edition

DESIGNED TO INSPIRE AWE

To honor Japanese craftsmanship, the House of Suntory invited Japan’s well-known washi artist, Eriko Horiki, to design the Sakura Bloom Edition label. The design uses hints of pink and metallic tones to simulate the falling Sakura blossom petals. The outer packaging – also designed by an esteemed Japanese artist – brings to life the Hanami festival through the beauty of the Sakura blossoms and the audience admiring them. The six-sided bottle design and embossed botanicals embody the concept of “Shun”, representing the six Japanese botanicals harvested at their seasonal peak to make Roku.
