You’re missing out if you haven’t tasted African Dry Gin yet.

Kakira is a town in the Eastern region of Uganda. It’s where the country’s biggest sugar cane factory is located. Kakira Spirits was founded to serve a mission: decrease waste and carbon footprint but also contribute to the production process of their sugar estate that was founded in 1930. All their products are made on the 45,000 acre sugar cane estate that sits right on the shores of Lake Victoria which is the principal source of the River Nile. These guys are incredibly dedicated to the conservation of animal species, the environment, and water. They even created a charitable fund so that a percentage of proceeds of bottle sales can be donated to local charities in Uganda. Plus, their Spirits are of top-notch quality.

Kakira African Dry Gin is born in the heart of Africa on the banks of Lake Victoria at the source of the Nile River. Crafted with the finest juniper berries, all the botanicals are grown on the estate and this special Gin is produced farm-to-bottle. The ingredients are steeped and copper-pot distilled, which results in a very refreshing and juniper-forward profile. Bottled at a pleasant 94 proof, expect to taste a plethora of flavors from juniper, pine, black pepper, African lime, coriander, and baking spices. It’s amazing in a G&T yet it can stand perfectly on its own.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
