135º East

東経135度兵庫ドライジン The Kaikyō Distillery

Marrying authentic Japanese botanicals with London Dry Gin botanicals, our spirit lets two cultures interweave energetically. Add to this a splash of sake distillate and you have a truly artisanal recipe, inspired by the Yonezawa family’s rich history of sake production.

Properties

135° East gin offers a powerful floral aroma over scents of citrus fruits. It comes with a silky, balanced feel in the mouth, combining citrus, bitter and floral notes, while sansho pepper gives it a warm, peppery finish.
