New hard seltzer from Kirin Brewery

Kirin Brewery, one of the Japanese alcoholic beverage giants, has launched its first hard seltzers in Japan as well as a new whiskey in response to rising trends surrounding ready-to-drink (RTD) consumption and sustained interest in the country’s whiskey sector.


Packed on a 250ml can, Kirin’s first range of hard seltzers has been released under the Smirnoff Brand in two flavors, Orange & Grapefruit, and White Peach.

In terms of packaging, the company said it decided to use a simple design on a white base and eliminate as much text as possible, whilst retaining style.

Kirin-made Smirnoff Seltzers will be exclusive to Japan because the licensing for the Smirnoff brand does not belong to the firm beyond the country, the company stated.

Its whiskey product is made at its Mt. Fuji Distillery and follows Kirin’s Single Grain Japanese Whiskey Fuji which already has two other export markets in France and the United States.
