Roku Gin - Suntory

Size
Tasting notes

Roku Gin means "six" in Japanese. Six like the number of plants used in its production - Sakura flower, yuzu bark, Sansho pepper, Sakura leaf, Sencha tea and Gyokuro tea - and like the 6 sides of the bottle which is of a particular hexagonal shape. The bottle design is complemented by the rice paper (washi) label, adorned with traditional Japanese calligraphy.

Roku Gin was born from the genius of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory, whose goal was to produce a Japanese distillate made exclusively from natural products from his country. The delicate essence of cherry blossom (sakura), for example, is obtained by vacuum distillation in stainless steel stills, while the intense taste of yuzu is obtained by distillation in copper stills.

More about the Producer

  • Hibiki

    Hibiki

    Hibiki is one of the most popular Japanese whiskies available today. Founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii, Hibiki was the first malt whisky distillery in Japan. His vision was passed on to his son Keizo Saji. Now, Shingo Torii, Shinjiro’s grandson, is the 3rd Master Blender of the House. “Suntory is a House of Master Blenders, based on the heritage and legacy of Shinjiro Torii’s vision,” says Gardner Dunn, Senior Beam Suntory Whisky Specialists – East Coast. “Suntory is still a family owned company and the vision of its founder remains untouched.”

     

    Hibiki is a unique and truly Japanese blend that could only be born from a house of Master Blenders. “Hibiki has been praised from the world for its subtle, refined and complex flavours and aromas and is considered the paragon of Suntory’s art of blending.”
