Roku Gin, the latest Japanese gin to hit South African shores, attributes their subtle, yet complex flavour profile to the seasons and harvesting their botanicals at the precise timing in which they blossom and bloom. In light of the season of giving, Roku wishes to further their age-old tradition of sharing with the launch of their limited edition festive gift packs – a flawless gift for both the gin newbie and experienced veteran.
This celebratory gift comes complete with a beautiful bottle of Roku – a signature of Japanese craftsmanship, from the embossed bottle to the traditional label – accompanied by two ceramic cups, each etched with the Roku logo. Enthusiasts will find these spoils delicately packaged in a blush case, wrapped with a cherry blossom print that will hold its own under the tree. The elements invite gin-lovers to experience more than a simple gin & tonic and engage in the spirit of Japanese hospitality, Omotenashi, where people are encouraged to pour each other’s Roku Gin as a part of the refreshing Japanese ritual to share the spirit, and enjoy it with friends.
Prepped with precision, the brand’s perfect serve Japanese gin & tonic is created with ice and slices of fresh ginger – six, representing the traditional, seasonal botanicals that help shape the brand’s unique flavour profile – to balance the Yuzu top notes, mixed with a good quality tonic. The serving ritual and recipe is conveniently outlined on the back of the Roku Gin festive pack for ease of celebrating.
In a 750ml bottle at 43% ABV, the Roku festive packs are offered at a recommended retail price of R299 in major retailers nationally; Makro, Pick n Pay, Checkers, and selected TOPS at Spar.
