Warm yourself up this winter with these Roku Japanese Gin Cocktail Recipes

Can you believe that it’s June already? It seems this year has flown by!

As we get closer to the chilly months, there’s nothing quite like enjoying a delicious winter-inspired cocktail to suit the season.

Meaning ‘six’ in Japanese, Roku incorporates six traditional Japanese botanicals which are infused, distilled and blended by the Japanese artisans of Suntory Spirits in Osaka, Japan.

Roku is carefully crafted by Japanese artisans with skillful precision and meticulous attention to detail to create a perfectly balanced gin. Roku’s flavour profile is achieved by balancing six unique Japanese botanicals with eight traditional gin botanicals*.

The six Japanese botanicals – Sakura flower, Sakura leaf, Yuzu peel, Sencha tea, Gyokuro tea and Sansho pepper – are harvested in accordance with ‘shun’, the tradition of enjoying each ingredient at its best by only harvesting at its peak of flavour and perfection.?
