Roku Gin is the gin created by Suntory. As its creator Master Blender Kazuyuki Tori likes to say, it's a Japanese gin with Japanese style.
This style is reflected in the choice of the 6-faceted polygon-shaped bottle representing the number 6 which is said roku in Japanese, but also in the choice of ingredients for infusion with a selection of plants representing the four seasons; sakura leaves, and sakura blossom for spring, sencha tea and gyokuro tea for summer, sansho pepper for autumn and yuzu zest for winter.
There are also 8 more classic plant species of any self-respecting gin, including genievre, orange peel, lemon zest, coriander and cinnamon, among others.

The brand Suntory Spirits
In addition to whisky, Suntory also produces gin and vodka at a dedicated site: the Liquor Atelier, located in the city of Osaka, the historical birthplace where the company was founded in 1899.
For Suntory, the history of spirits production began in 1923 with whisky and the founding of Yamazaki, the first malt distillery in Japan. With this accumulated know-how in the art of distillation, Shiji Torii, the founder of the company, started to produce other foreign spirits with Hermes gin in 1936, and Hermes vodka in 1956.
