Masahiro Okinawa Gin 01 Bottling Note

An intriguing Japanese gin from the Masahiro distillery, known for making Awamori (a type of rice-based spirit) but now exploring the glory of juniper! Alongside the aforementioned juniper, the distillers in Okinawa have used guava leaves, long pepper, roselle (a type of hibiscus), goya (a type of melon) and shekwasha (a green citrus fruit native to Okinawa and Taiwan).

Premium Gin Advent

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Sharp fruit sweetness tempered by earthy juniper and leafy hints. Citrus blossom keeps it fresh.

Masahiro Okinawa Gin Recipe 01 Reviews

I liked very much

Great taste

Watery taste

A very watery taste, its really not comparable to all other quality gins, really regret this purchase.

Not your regular gin but a craft gin with lots of flavors

This Okinawa Gin is one of the best tasting gin’s I’ve tried and keep sipping (over ice) during these summer days. Very refreshing with some hints of citrus & sweetness coming from all the native Okinawa ingredients. If you’ve been to Okinawa you know the Okinawan’s take pride in their gastronomy & drinks. If you haven’t tried this gin, you are missing it. Let’s not fall for someone else’s taste buds to tell you they donuts like this gin. Let your taste buds and pallet do the tasting..

Wonderful, new world style- local botanicals from Okinawa

Love the exotic botanicals, wonderful for cocktails with other interesting fruits. I found some of the other reviews odd - maybe they are more into old school gin which is fine. Definitely new world style. Love it!

Really Good

A different and welcome addition to the world of Gin.

The bold flavor of the rice distillate serves as a clean canvas of which the botanicals work very well with. I especially like it served with a tonic and spritz of lemon juice.

Tastes like Lighter Fluid.

Lighter fluid in a cool bottle. Complete waste of money.

Tastes more like whisky than gin

I went to Okinawa to buy.
Very dissatisfied with a straight cup for intelligence
But when mixed with non-pepsi coke 4: 6 or 3: 7 it tastes good.

Never drink straight.
The taste of straight is no better than just vodka.

Bonkers gin but amazing uses - highly recommend!

I can understand why some of the reviews have said this gin is a little odd - it is! The first thing to notice is it's not like your usual Japanese gins, it has LOTS and lots of flavour. I've read the base spirit is not a neutral grain spirit (like most gin) but a robust Awamori. This, straight away, gives it a a really full-on back bone. Then the botanicals are very herbal and not at all familiar to the western palate. After having played around with this gin a lot I see it more like a Mezcal than a gin. It works with tonic but is actually better with sparkling water and a little grapefruit (cordial or slice). Or make Mezcal-typo cocktails. Try a Martinez. In summary, this is not necessarily the right choice if you like very simple gins but if you're looking for something amazing to play with (only a small amount will have a big impact on a cocktail) then this is amazing!

I concur with "not a fan"

Interesting but an odd aftertaste - unlike other gins I've had and this is not necessarily a good thing. This does slow one down and it definitely is drinkable as a slop sipper with tonic but I would not purchase this again.
