Zimasa Fruit

ZIMBABWE + MASAU = ZIMASA

The brand name Zimasa is a fusion of Zimbabwe and Masau, reflecting our deep connection to the land and its cherished fruit. By combining these elements, Zimasa Vodka embodies the spirit and essence of Zimbabwe, that offers a unique and authentic taste experience.

Origin Story

Founded by three passionate individuals, Zimasa Vodka was created to celebrate their homeland’s rich heritage and unique culture. Inspired by their childhood memories of locals foraging Masau fruit with their families, they set out to create a beverage that captured the essence of Zimbabwe and after years of experimenting with traditional distillation methods and the finest local ingredients, they perfected a recipe that truly reflects their heritage. 

#ZIMASAVODKA

Foraged in Zimbabwe

Our vodka's unique flavour comes from the Masau fruit in Zimbabwe.  Traditionally, after being sun-dried for a few days these fruits can be used to make a traditional beverage called "Kachasu".

Ziziphus Mauritania, the tree that produces Masau fruit, grows wildly and is part of agro-forestry systems that boost production, positively affect micro-climates, minimise soil degradation, restore soil fertility, and diversify income opportunities for the local families.

UK Distilled 

Zimasa Vodka is meticulously handcrafted in small batches, the Zimbabwean Masau fruit is distilled a minimum of six times, at the 17th Century Hensol Castle Distillery by Master DIstiller - Dai Wakely who developed a process to enhance the flavour with distinct notes of dry apple and plum.

Zero Waste 

As a company, we are committed to making our supply chain zero waste by 2026. We believe that sustainability is not just a buzzword, but a responsibility that we owe to our planet and future generations. We are constantly exploring new ways to reduce waste and minimise our environmental impact, and we excited to work towards this goal with our partners and suppliers.

Research & Development 

We are always looking for ways to reduce waste and maximise potential of natural resources. Currently, we are exploring various use cases for all the elements of the Masau fruit, starting with our premium distilled vodka, preservatives such as jams, chutneys, and marinades, and even transforming the waste, such as leftover skins and seeds, into animal feed. We believe that by utilising every part of the fruit, we can not only reduce waste but also create new products that are both sustainable and delicious.

Blockchain Technology

Zororo Trust Logo (White/Faded)

We are currently exploring the integration of blockchain technology into our roadmap to enhance the authenticity and transparency of our products. By leveraging Origyn technology, we aim to assign each bottle a unique code that is connected via an onchain certification on the Internet Computer blockchain. This will ensure immutable certification and allow our customers to easily verify the provenance and integrity of their purchase.
