135 East Hyogo Dry Gin is batch distilled both with essentially Japanese and traditional London Dry style botanicals. The result is a perfect balance of complexity and harmony, a truly Japanese spirit, named after the Akashi Meridian at 135 degrees east longitude which runs past the distillery in Akashi city. This gin marks the centenary of the start of the Yonezawa family's history in distilling fine Japanese craft spirits.
Each botanical is sourced from local farmers or specialized vendors then distilled separately to preserve the botanicals characteristics. This process allows better control of the final blending process when sake spirit is added. Once distilled, the gin has a typical soft sweetness which gently intwines and harmonizes the five Japanese botanicals.
