Japanese brand 135o East Gin has secured its first mainstream listing in the UK with supermarket Waitrose.


The brand, part of our Marussia Beverages Artisanal Japanese Collection, is available from the Waitrose website and 135 stores nationwide.

Named after the 135° East meridian that crosses Akashi City in the Hyogo prefecture, our gin represents our passion for discovering what lies beyond borders. Inspired by Japan’s important Taisho period, this unexpected gin honours a time when Eastern culture merged with Western culture.

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”.

It currently retails on the Waitrose website and in 135 Waitrose stores for RRP £32 per 700ml bottle.
