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).

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

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.

Citrus Gin

A very distinct flavour, and nose. Has a citrus smell, and strong spirit smell. Nice flavour. Nice gin.

Not a fan

The strong alcohol taste will not appeal to everyone, for me it was a bit too much. You can't really taste the other spices. Will try it with a few different tonics to see if I can find something that might go with it, but at this point I can't recommend it. On a more positive note, the bottle looks great on the shelf.
