135 East comes from the Kaikyo distillery and was named after the Japanese standard
time meridian of 135-degrees east longitude which crosses Akashi in the Hyogo Prefecture.
135 East is an out of the ordinary gin that brings out what we call the Hyogo style. In addition to the traditional botanicals used in London Dry gin production, 135 East blends in 5 other Japanese botanicals (including Yuzu and Sansho pepper) carefully selected by our distiller expert Kimio Yonezawa . To embody the Japanese soul of this unexpected gin, we also added a touch of distilled sake to our recipe.
If you’re looking to be stimulated by the unexpected, you’ve come to the right place.
