Fuji whiskey was born out of a joint venture in 1972 between Kirin Brewery, Chivas brothers and Seagram and Sons to identify the optimal site for a new whisky distillery in Japan. Master Distiller Jota Tanaka (Icon Of Whisky Award Winner 2017), has 30 years of distilling experience in the US and Japan. He is only the second Master Blender in the distillery’s history.The water in this whiskey comes from snowmelt run-off from Mount Fuji, which takes about 50 years to cycle. A proprietary yeast is used for fermenting the various grains over a 72 hour fermentation period. Three distillation formats are employed: column (lighter style), batch kettle (medium style) and pot still (heavy style). The whiskey is aged in medium to high char ex bourbon barrels, refill and virgin oak. It is non–chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.Why does Fuji spell its whiskey with an “e” on the label? Other Japanese whiskies don’t. This is a nod to the brand’s North American heritage (Seagram’s).
