Created in 1993 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Fuji Gotemba Distillery, Kirin Pure Malt 20th Anniversary is a blend of single malts distilled and aged at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan, which some of them has the distinction of having been distilled in column stills, usually used for the production of grain whisky, instead of traditional pot stills.
Perfectly blended by Fuji Gotemba Chief Blender, this whisky is a brilliant illustration of the meticulous work that Japanese people are able to produce. Intense fruity and woody aromas escaping from when opening the bottle, eventually assert itself on the palate, delivering a beautiful complexity charged in notes of pineapple, mango, pepper and oak, with late tasting some hints of vanilla, nuts and tobacco leaves.
Kirin Pure Malt 20th Anniversary is a whisky that can be enjoyed with or without dry ice, but also in a Japanese style filled with sparkling water and lot of ice.

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.
Made of whiskies exclusively distilled, aged and bottled in Japan.
