Both whisky and awamori, this spirit elaborated by the Masahiro distillery is distilled in traditional stills, matured in bourbon barrels, and bottled in Japan.
Its round and sweet profile is expressed in the nose by greedy notes of vanilla and caramel coated with a light woody touch inherited from the oak barrel. When tasted, its character asserts itself with more pronounced caramelized and woody aromas that are accompanied by spicy and peppery notes on the finish.
Kujira 5 years is a 100% Japanese single grain whisky made from indica rice fermented with yeast and black koji, the microscopic fungus endemic to the tropical Okinawa archipelago. This blend of single grains matured for 5 years in oak barrels has benefited from the local climatic conditions of the cellar whose heat and humidity characteristics have shaped the depth and complexity of the profile.

The brand Kujira Whisky
Pioneer of a new kind of whisky, Kujira innovates in grain whiskies by exploiting a cereal hitherto unused for whisky and more traditionally associated with other Japanese spirits.
Grain whiskies made from rice, these whiskies also called Ryukyu whiskies from the name of the ancient kingdom of Okinawa, draw their roots from the ancestral know-how of Okinawa distilleries in the production of Awamori.
