STEP 1: Combine all ingredients and stir well.

STEP 2: Garnish with lemon or orange citrus twists.

Roku is a premium Japanese craft gin created by the House of Suntory in Osaka, Japan. Translating to the word ‘six’ in Japanese, Roku incorporates six seasonal botanicals that help shape the complex flavour profile. These botanicals are infused, distilled and blended to enhance flavour and form its Japanese identity, setting the spirit apart from other gins in South Africa.

Of the six unique botanicals used to make Roku Gin, two identify as winter elements, Yuzu, an aromatic citrus fruit which contains more nutrients and vitamin C and secondly, the Sansho pepper which has a fresh aroma, is classified as a warming herbal medicine.

You not only taste, but also feel all the warmth boosting the healing citrus flavours on the nose thanks to Roku’s mastery of the smooth flavours.

Roku Japanese Gin is available at a recommended retail price of R380 in major retailers nationally; Makro, Pick n Pay, Checkers, and selected TOPS at Spar. You can also order online through Takealot, Norman Goodfellows and others.
