    Roku, translating to the word ‘six’ in Japanese, is a crafted gin created with six botanicals sourced from Japan. These high-quality botanicals, harvested from the best growing areas in Japan each season, include sencha and gyokuro teas, celebrating summer, as well as the Sakura flower and leaf, which bloom in spring. Showcasing the unique flavours Japan produces in autumn, Sansho pepper adds a unique taste, as well as the peel of yuzu fruit, which finishes off the harmonious flavours of Roku Japanese Gin and represents the winter botanical.

    While flowers and chocolates are a fan favourite for Mother’s Day, why not be adventurous, and give the gift of exploration into the seasons of Japan, with an excellent gin for exploring a new cocktail territory.

    Roku Japanese Gin can also be enjoyed on the rocks or in a Japanese Gin & Tonic. Prepared with extra care, the Roku Japanese Gin & Tonic can be served with ice and slices of ginger to complement the refreshing and citrus top notes of yuzu – the perfect touch to make your mom feel extra special.
