For the cocktail lover with a more savoury palette.

With spring coming up, we thought what better way than to sip on a G&T, or better yet – one of several cocktails than with these savoury versions courtesy of Roku Gin.

If you’re looking for a savoury cocktail to enjoy, indulge in either the Roku Negroni with flavours of Umeshu, Campari and orange or the Roku Sour that combines Matcha and Yuzu.
