IWSC 2022 Silver A contemporary style of Dry Gin made in Japan, 135° East combines classic flavours with a unique local twist. One for those who love a citrus meets spice profile! Won a Silver medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022.

Yuzu citrus gives the gin a clear citrus hit, boosted by grapefruit and juicy mandarin. Shiso leaf adds a herbal tang around the juniper, while sansho pepper brings its fragrant spice to the finish. Serve with soda garnished with lemon.

Key Flavours


About this product

Three classic botanicals and five Japanese ones (cedar wood, shiso leaf, chrysanthemum, sansho pepper and yuzu) are individually distilled under vacuum, then blended. A touch of distilled Sake spirit is also added to a soft sweetness.

135° East is made by Master Distiller & Blender Kimio Yonezawa, who captures the essence of each Japanese botanical through a vacuum distillation process.

An expansion of the Akashi Sake Brewery, 135° East Gin comes from the Kaikyo Distillery in Akashi. The Gin is named after the longitude line that passes through Akashi, City (which has been used to determine Japan standard time since 1888).

Ki No Bi Gin

Filled with such a brilliantly executed flavour journey featuring native ingredients - when Japan’s Ki No Bi launched back in 2016, it was destined to be Gin's next global superstar.

"Fresh on the nose - to taste, there's yuzu and lemon, leading into juniper and hinoki followed by sancho pepper and a gingery warmth. The shiso, tea and bamboo all add complexity, so too does the rise base. A beautiful gin."

"With yuzu, bergamot, pink grapefruit and lavender all in the mix, the nose and first impressions are always going to be of a bright gin, but it's the cardamom and pink peppercorn that loom large in a G&T and help add depth to the flavour."
