SUNTORY ROKU GIN - 70 Cl
The first gin from Japan's legendary Suntory - Roku Gin. This expression is made using a selection of botanicals, including six Japanese botanicals that provide a whistle-stop tour of the four seasons. These include sakura leaf and sakura flower for spring, sencha tea and gyokuro tea for summer, sansho pepper for autumn and yuzu peel for winter. Traditional gin botanicals also featured include the likes of juniper, orange peel, lemon peel, coriander and cinnamon, among others.
|Nose||Heavy, leafy hints of green and early grey tea.|
|Palate||A vivid note of bitter citrus and smokey leaves, with a palate drying and striking bitterness closer to something like Suze.|
|Finish||The bitter note becomes evocative of gentian root and wormwood on the finish of Roku Gin.|
