Named after the 135° eastern meridian that crosses the city of Akashi in Hyogo Prefecture, this gin represents itself with a passion for discovering what lies beyond.
Inspired by Japan’s significant Taisho period, this gin honors a time when Eastern culture merged with Western.
By combining new flavours that enhance and complement each other, Kimio Yonezawa has created a new innovative and unconventional type of gin: the «Hyogo Dry Gin».
After careful consideration of the flavor profile of over 50 different botanicals, Master Distiller & Blender Kimio Yonezawa decided to combine 3 traditional botanicals from Europe with 5 uniquely Japanese botanicals — all sourced from small local producers and the best specialists in Japan, distilled separately to preserve character, and finally blended together.
The essence of each Japanese botanical is captured through a vacuum distillation process, a technique used in the luxury perfume industry.
135° East preserves the pure olfactory notes and subtleties of their aromas.
