Masahiro Okinawa Gin is produced at Masahiro Distillery known for its awamori (a rice-based spirit made only in Okinawa).

In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced.
