        Hell no! You don't ruin this juice with tonic water. Ice is all you need.

          it is nice on the rocks.

          But it's also very nice with a decent tonic.
          I'd rather have it neat then with say a generic or Schweppes tonic.

            @M00Cow: My first time trying Roku, and I had to come back to say I don't ever want to mix this again. It's magnificent neat. Tonic is just too overpowering. Will pick up a cheaper gin to mix.

              @miracle: excellent! it really is value for money.
              I had some neat last night and thought, wow this really is great, it doesn't need the tonic to enhance. But each to their own.

      oh yes. this stuff is one of my favs

    •  

      Tonic (bitter and sweet) ruins the gin flavours, better off just using soda water.

      Very much so - don't listen to the gin wanks below telling you you can't mix it, it's not a $200 scotch.

      I like it with fevertree mediterranean, and then cut up some slivers of fresh ginger to throw in there as well.

      ROKU GIN - Unparalleled soft, round and subtly sweet taste.
      Nose : Cherry blossom and green tea provide a floral and sweet aroma.
      Palate : Complex, multi layered, yet harmonious flavour of various botanicals. Traditional gin taste in the base, plus characteristic Japanese botanical notes with yuzu as the top note. Smooth and silky texture.
      Finish : The crisp Japanese sansho pepper brings a little spiciness to the finish.

      do yourself a favour and grab some. this is a fav

      In simple terms, it's very refreshing. Thats subjective of course.

      Probably best to try it out somewhere, buy one glass if you don't like you wouldn't of wasted $$$ on a bottle you will never drink.

      In saying that ask for that specific gin, Gordon's & Bombay's are not nice gins imo

    fml..why did i move from NSW to SA.

    •  

      Do they not sell it there?

    •  

      Cos SA is a much better place to live.

    Highly recommend this Gin. One of the best in my opinion.

    •  

      Agree, love the subtle spice!
      Tho my always go to is Bombay Sapphire, that juice..

  •  

    After drinking Four Pillars, I've found it hard to enjoy other brands. How's this go in comparison with 4P Rare Dry?

  •  

    I like this gin but not the best for the money IMO. I still reckon ALDI's bog standard gin for under $30 is the go. They recently had a special on their UK version which is even better.

    •  

      Next time it's on special can you post on ozb, Ive heard good things about 4P, wouldn't mind given it a crack

    •  

      Wait… what's the ALDI gin? Is it Darley's? (https://www.aldi.com.au/en/groceries/liquor/spirits/spirits-...)

      •  

        I'm pretty sure it's darleys

      •  

        That's the one and it's made in Australia. The Aldi UK gin is called Oliver Cromwell and is fantastic value for money.

    Hot damn. I ordered from two Coles, in case one got cancelled, and now I have two bottles.
    Tried tonight during Eurovision and I am definitely keeping them both.
    It's fresh, light and really well blended.
    I can see why everyone rates it.

    I think the website is stuffed up. After logging in, it redirects it (possibly via JS) to an address with 'null' in it. Their frontend developers need to do some serious code reviews.
