The kirin – the symbol of Kirin Beer – is a potent creature from ancient Chinese mythology, revered as a harbinger of good luck.
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.
Kirin is crisp while maintaining all the rich flavour of the malt.
