Shinju, meaning “Pearl”, was born from the slopes of the great Mt. Fuji, Japan’s highest and most sacred mountain. The ancient Japanese believed that pearls were created from the tears of Angels; ‘born of the water’. Our distillery is situated on the southeastern flank of Mount Fuji in Yamanashi Prefecture, which makes the sacred mountain its sole water source. 


Our “White Pearl” blend is a proprietary blend of this pristine alpine water source and four distinct whisky expressions. All carefully crafted by our Master Distiller, each of which has been aged 2 - 4 years in new and mature white oak barrels to give Shinju its rich caramel color and distinct flavor profile.
