Masahiro & Okinawa Gin
Masahiro Distillery was founded in 1883 by Shobun Higa. His father – Shozoku Higa (the master chef for Ryuku Kingdom) had an established reputation in Ryuku Kingdom and he was awarded with the license for Awamori (rice spirits). Shozoku’s passion for cuisines is still alive and Masahiro Distillery is famous for its production techniques, prominent qualities, and passion for innovation over 100 years.
Inspired by Okinawa's tradition and culture, Masahiro Distillery decided to utilize distillation techniques for local spirits in Awamori (rice spirits). Unlike distillers in the western countries, they distillate gin in two different single distillers to create a unique flavor which cannot be found anywhere else. Respecting traditional techniques which are used in this southern island for over 130 years, they produced gin in an original manner, until now.
