About Kakira Spirits
Kakira Sugar Works is the leading producer of sugar in Uganda. Founded by Muljibhai Prabhudas Madhvani in 1930, it is now part of the Madhvani Group. The enormous operation crushes more than 6,000 tons of cane each day, producing over 150,000 tons of sugar annually.
Kakira Spirits is located in the heart of Africa, near Lake Victoria ― the source of the White Nile, one of the two major tributaries of the Nile. The company was launched in order to decrease waste and the carbon footprint, as well as contribute to the production processes of the sugar cane estate. With a strong attachment to nature conservation and charity, Kakira Distillery produces gin, vodka, and rum.
According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
