Roku Sakura Bloom Edition launches in Malaysia

The House of Suntory recently unveiled its first release of a limited edition gin in Malaysia - the Roku Sakura Bloom Edition.

 

The Roku Sakura Bloom Edition pays homage to the famous annual Hanami (flower watching) festival - where people from all over gather to witness the iconic cherry blossom season in Japan during Spring. 

While Roku gin embodies the Japanese concept of “shun” (the moment when a seasonal product is at its peak in flavour and freshness), its limited edition variant has been crafted to capture the essence of each season.
