Mt. Fuji Distillery was established and commissioned in 1973. While most other Japanese distilleries followed the whisky production methods of Scotland, Fuji took influence from major whisk(e)y countries all around the world, hence the “e” in Fuji whiskey. Master Distiller Jota Tanaka has 30 years of distilling experience in the US and Japan and is only the second Master Blender in the distillery’s history.
The Distillery’s temperature and altitude play a significant role in the final product showcasing unique flavours of Fuji single grain whiskey.
Being the closest distillery to Mt Fuji (only 12km away) they source their water direct from the mountain and it is used across the entire production process. The water takes about 50 years to cycle from snowmelt.
