MASAHIRO Okinawa Gin – Bartender’s Batch 2020
”Okinawa Gin Bartender’s Batch 2020” was collaborated with the head bartenders at the bar Algernon Sinfonia and BarLievt from Tokyo. The theme of the second edition, 2020, is “Herbal Edition,” and the base awamori uses fruity sake that has been distilled under reduced pressure using Ginjo yeast. In total, in addition to juniper, 5 local botanicals are used from tankan, guava leaves, shell ginger, roselle and lemongrass.
Nose: Refreshing peppermint, lemongrass, basket of citrus fruits, ginger, and guava. Ginger candy in the back with gentle scent as of morning forest.
Palate: The sweetness of ginger tightened with juniper and tankan, with hints of roselle and lemongrass come afterwards.
Finish: Long and smooth and with lingering notes of herbal and spice flavours.
