Recently voted Best Japanese grain whisky at the World Whiskies Awards 2015, Kirin Single Grain Blender's Choice 2015 is a limited edition of a blend of single grains expressing amazing aromas, and carefully selected by Jota Tanaka Chief Blender at Fuji Gotemba Distillery. This rewarded batch has been bottled in a limited edition.

Characterized by a fruity nose expressing aromas of pineapple, apricot and vanilla, Kirin Single Grain Blender's Choice 2015 unleashes on the palate a gourmet blend of aromas of honey, brown sugar and peach in the background with some spicy notes frankincense and cinnamon. It was bottled at 46% without chill filtration in order to get a round and slightly oily texture that allows it to deliver the power of its aromas.

Founded in 1973 at the foot of Mount Fuji, Kirin Fuji Gotemba distillery is distilling malts and grains whiskies into column or traditional pot stills, creating a wide variety of types of whisky vatted with expertise as well, wich both Blender's Choice are a perfect illustration

The distillery

The distillery 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.
