Known throughout the world for its expertise in the distillation of grain whiskies (Kirin Single Grain has already been awarded a gold medal at the International Spirits Challenge 2020), Fuji Gotemba distillery founded in 1970 at the foot of Mount Fuji unveils its latest creation : Kirin Fuji Single Grain.

Jota Tanaka, Kirin Whisky's Master Blender, shows us once again how to achieve a perfect balance between light and cereal notes, and rich and intense aromas. This aromatic harmony is achieved through the blending of three types of grain whiskies : a light type (distilled in column stills), a medium (distilled in Batch Kettle still) and an intense one (distilled in Double Still, a worldwide specificity outside the lands of Bourbon).

The harmonious spirit of this blend is confirmed on tasting with a nose revealing floral notes accompanied by greedy notes of pear pie, candied chestnut and orange peel which are joined in the mouth by aromas of poached pears, apple compote and dark chocolate, but also spicy touches of cinnamon and toasted touches of rye bread. On the finish, Kirin Fuji Single Grain disappears gently leaving behind a few scents of tannins and incense.

The distillery

The distillery Fuji

The Mount Fuji Distillery, founded in 1972 by the Kirin group in the city of Gotemba, is located, as its name suggests, at the foot of the famous Mount Fuji, one of the most well-known emblem of Japan. While the distillery has historical knowledge in grain whiskies, it produces a wide variety of Japanese whiskies that all pay homage to the Fujisan.


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.

Excellent ! Très gourmand et malgré tout assez complexe. Le petit Mont Fuji dans la base de la bouteille est très joli.
