Searching the world for the highest quality malt.
Malt is the ingredient that dictates the flavour of beer. So only the very best is chosen by Kirin.
The first round of selection sees the fine quality malt from Japan, North America, Europe and Australia carefully examined. Then a shortlist is drawn up, and Kirin’s experts make their final selection based on experience and instinct.
Since then, Kirin has developed new malt varieties in their quest for improved flavour.
This uncompromising attitude to selecting malt gives
KIRIN ICHIBAN its unmatched quality and taste.
