Janice Wong Snow Skin Mooncakes – A journey through the four seasons
Complex and multi-layered, Roku Gin is carefully crafted by Japanese artisans, following a centuries-old tradition of meticulous attention to detail. Roku perfectly combines eight traditional gin botanicals with six unique Japanese botanicals cultivated over the four seasons. The aroma of Spring shines through an infusion of freshly-picked Sakura flowers, while sencha and gyokuro teas steep the brew with a taste of summer. Spicy sansho peppers bring in a brisk autumnal kick, complemented by the wintery citrus bite of yuzu peel. The union of these botanicals results in an elegant, perfectly balanced gin with sweet floral aroma, and yuzu and herbal green notes on top of a crisp finish.
Available from 1 August to 10 September 2022, the exclusive Roku Gin x Janice Wong Snow Skin Mooncake Collection is available for purchase here and retails at S$138 for a set of eight (inclusive of GST).
