A delightful gin- a bit similar to the Botanist. Smooth, less strong juniper but definitely there and the other flavor profiles blended beautifully. Great for a martini or even just on the rocks.
Roku Japanese Gin
Gin /43% ABV / Japan
Roku is the premium Japanese craft gin created by the House of Suntory in Osaka, Japan. Crafted by Japanese artisans with meticulous attention to detail, Roku is the perfect balance of flavors. Its precise balance is testimony to Japan’s renowned craftsmanship. Suntory has a long history of making gin, dating back to 1936, and Roku is the modern embodiment of Suntory’s mastery of this process. In Japanese, Roku translates as “six”. Roku follows the concept of shun – the tradition of enjoying every food and drink in its proper season, only when those foods are at the peak of their flavors. Inside every bottle of Roku are six very special botanicals sourced in Japan. Each of the Japanese botanicals are harvested in their ideal season and from the best growing areas in Japan to ensure the utmost freshness and flavor. The six Japanese botanicals are combined with eight traditional gin botanicals – juniper berry, coriander seed, angelica root, angelica seed, cardamom seed, cinnamon, bitter orange peel, and lemon peel – for an authentic gin taste. A unique multiple distillation process brings out the best in each botanical.View all products by RokuCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Smooth as silk!

One of our favorite guns to sip on neatly, or make a cocktail with. Solid, smooth, and delicious. Nice price, too!
I've always been an English gin drinker, but had to switch to this one -- the flavor is really amazing (not too heavy on the botanicals, just right), and the bottle/design is actually gorgeous; nice to have out on a bar.

Very smooth, but not particularly dominant in any one flavor. Best comparison is Hendricks or Plymouth. Definitely not a strong juniper note
