Unique terroir. Unique J-Gin.

The Masahiro Distillery goes way back. It was around 1883 that Shozoku Higa, a renowned chef on Okinawa, the southernmost of the Japanese main islands, was granted the license to produce rice Spirits or Awamori. But it was his son Shobun Higa that ended up taking distilling. Today, more than a century later, their passion lives through Okinawa's first craft Gin ― the Masahiro Gin.

Masahiro Gin is crafted in the same way that local rice Spirits get distilled, using a vertical and horizontal still, resulting in a unique Japanese Spirit. Naturally, the botanicals reflect the terroir as well, the juniper berries being joined by 5 ingredients that reflect Okinawa's position between 2 oceans that have made the island a crossroads of different cultures: the local shekwasha citrus fruit, guava leaves, goya, hibiscus, and Javanese long pepper. But it isn't just the expertise, tradition, and Japanese culture that makes Masahiro Gin. It was also the seasonal wind that whips up Okinawa that breathed its magic into the very first drops that were distilled in 2017.

London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Fresh and citrusy, the nose has lemon zest, a florality, juniper, and pleasant underlying sweetness.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's a bright palate with citrus zest, a nicely-balanced bitter-sweetness, as well as a touch of pepper and minerality. The roselle brings a dryness that rounds up the profile beautifully.

Finish
Finishes smooth and refreshing with a tingling peppery spice with herbal undertones.
