The taste of the Islands
The Hinano brand used a logo drawn by the Swedish painter Pierre HEYMAN. This illustration represents the “vahine”, the Polynesian woman. This logo has evolved over the years to offer a modern design still using the symbol of the vahine. The first beers were sold in 65cl glass bottles and then others formats were introduced in the market as the can. The alcohol degree of Hinano was initially set to 4°, this degree increased to 5° in 1990. During the same year, the Hinano’s quality was internationally recognized: the beer received the gold medal at the 29th World Selection of Beer in Luxembourg. Therefore, the beer has been exported to Japan and France. In 1993, Hinano received a second Gold medal in Brussels. Today, Hinano is also available in Europe, USA and South America.
Since its beginnings, the Hinano brand has participated in many events. It began in 1974 by sponsoring the Tahiti Hobbie cat World Championship. In 1990, the brand sponsored the election of Miss Tahiti. Today, Hinano is a major partner for big events such as the famous “Hawaiki Nui Va’a” Polynesian canoe race or the famous “Heiva” cultural dance competition.
The Hinano brand has experienced such important success that many other products have been developed under the same brand name. Nowadays, Hinano is also known as a clothing line and sports equipment brand. Whether you are in France or in the United States, you can find a Hinano beer in your local supermarket to enjoy a little taste of our islands. Manuia! Cheers!
