Known for his excellent whisky, Suntory also decided to embark on the adventure of producing gin starting with Roku Gin. Japanese gin contains 6 botanicals. Sakura flower, yuzu shell and sansho pepper give Roku its unique flavour profile. In addition, a touch of green tea and bitterness, for good standing out from other gins.
This French gin is produced by the famous Ferrand Cognac House. When they do not use their stills for the cognac that is only distilled between September and April, they use it to distill this gin with juniper berries grown in the Ferrand Chateau de Bonbonnet in Cognac. Its spirit base is distilled from French wheat. Its herbs range from fennel to star anise, nutmeg, cinnamon and orange and lemon peel. Citadelle is distilled with a unique distillation process that maximizes flavors. The result is a peppery, herbal gin that is perfect for gin tonics.
