Fuji Gotemba

Fuji Gotemba is a distillery founded in 1972 by the Kirin Group and located at the foot of the famous Mount Fuji, the brand's emblem.

The distillery is located at 610 meters above sea level, in a natural environment. The distillery has springs where the pure water has been filtered through layers of volcanic rocks for decades. At this altitude, the climate is rather cool with an average temperature of 13°C, and the high humidity throughout the year is ideal for maturing the whiskies.

The distillery is equipped with traditional and column stills that allow for a range of single malt styles and three distinct styles of grain whisky; light, medium and strong. All of the distillery's whiskies are aged exclusively in American oak barrels, the famous Bourbon barrels.

According to Master Blender Jota Tanaka, the distillery aims to produce a typically Japanese whisky, with a smooth texture, rich and fruity aromas with sweet notes, using modern equipment and technology and the best know-how from Scotland, as well as the United States and Canada.
