Kirin Fuji Single Grain

Kirin Fuji Single Grain

A fresh and fruity whiskey with green pears, apple compote, vanilla custard, candied chestnut and citrus peel 

This whisky is unique as it is a blend of all 3 types of single grain produced at Fuji-Gotemba, light, medium and heavy, and the use of doublers which are generally not seen outside of bourbon production (hence the E in whiskey), which set this whiskey apart from others around the world.

Due to its special location at the foot of Mount Fuji the bottle has the mountain indented into the base of the bottle.

Distillery Notes

Created to fill a gap in the burgeoning Japanese whisky market. Kirins Fuji-Gotemba distillery (A joint creation by Chivas and Seagrams) is one of the largest distilleries in the world and is unique in their use of a doubler, which is a rarity outside of the bourbon industry.

The distillery was founded in 1972 and creates 3 types of single grain whiskey, single malt whisky and blended whiskies.

Located at the base of the famous Mount Fuji, the distilleries location was chosen for its similarity to scotland with a cool climate and abundance of natural spring water, and large open space for plenty of maturation warehouses.
