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.
