Quick Overview

Kujira Ryukyu Single Grain Whisky Series is a collection of new make whiskies jointly launched by the representative distillers in Okinawa, Japan. The KUJIRA whiskies were saccharified, fermented, and distilled with 100% Indica rice and black Koji unique to the area and then aged in oak casks to achieve a unique deep amber whisky. The Ryukyu Islands are subtropical archipelago at the southernmost tip of Japan. Its all-year-round hot and humid climate accelerates the maturation of whisky several times faster than in a temperate climate, thus producing a fuller and rounder body that accentuates the unique aroma of the Indica rice.
