From the lush banks of the River Nile and the sunny climate of Lake Victoria comes a new range of award winning spirits developed in Africa.
Kakira Distilery can be found in Jinja, Uganda nestling alongside Kakira Sugar Works where cane sugar has been produced by the same family for over 70 years. Gin has long been popular in this country, and building on this heritage we’ve created a range of premium spirits to share with the rest of the world. We believe that it’s time high time to put Africa firmly on the map as a producer of truly exceptional drinks.
DISCOVER THE SECRET...
Unbeknown to many outside of this region, gin and other spirits have been made here in East Africa for almost 100 years. Our uniquely fertile land and perfect growing climate create the ideal growing environment for the natural elements that make up a perfect drink.
Our secret can remain hidden no longer. Kakira Distillery is now ready to share with you its spirits that come with a truly unique provenance and heritage.
We begin right at the beginning. In the fields. Our sugar cane flourishes under the hot African sun. The sugar cane is gathered and turned into the finest natural sugar granules. Fermentation brings us the alcohol. Then we bring together the optimum combination of traditional techniques and cutting edge production to create a consistently outstanding set of drinks that will hold their own in whatever setting you choose to enjoy them.
