Roku is produced in the “Liquor Atelier”, the specialized craft distillery for Suntory spirits and liquor.
For instance, the delicate scent of cherry blossom is isotopically to extract the most flavor and maintain their individual flavor is a process unique to Roku, the botanicals are 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.
Nose: Cherry blossom and green tea provide a floral and sweet aroma.
Palate: Complex, multi layered, yet harmonious flavour of various botanicals. Traditional gin taste in the base, plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes with yuzu as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.
Finish: The crisp Japanese sansho pepper brings a little spiciness to the finish.
