KIRIN ICHIBAN = JAPAN’S PREMIUM BEER
KIRIN ICHIBAN is brewed from only malt, hops and water. Unlike other beers, only the first press of the wort is used. That´s why it´s called ICHIBAN - meaning “first” and “best” in Japanese.
“Ichiban Shibori” is a unique method of brewing beer at its purest from a single pure ingredient: 100% malt.
This one–and–only technique gives KIRIN ICHIBAN a unique taste and flavor found nowhere else in the world.
