Kirin Ichiban


In Singapore, the flagship product is Kirin Ichiban, an innovative beer that is made from 100% malt using the First Press manufacturing method. Nothing from the second press is used, ensuring the very best quality beer and making it truly one of a kind.


Kirin Ichiban is made with a luxurious single wort brewing process which extracts only the purest, most flavorful portion of the finest ingredients.  When combined with its new all malt formula, the result is a distinctively smooth, clean, and full-bodied beer—yet with none of the bitter aftertaste one would expect from a beer with this much flavor.


For more information, please visit the Kirin Ichiban website.


What makes Kirin Ichiban the purest beer in the world?


Kirin Ichiban's premium quality begins with our unique First Press brewing process, which extracts only the purest, most flavorful portion of the finest ingredients. The result is a distinctively crisp, smooth, and full-bodied beer from start to finish. Experience the refreshing, refined taste of Kirin Ichiban.

Lager Beer


Loved by our customers for more than 120 years, Kirin Lager Beer is one of Japan’s leading beers. The beer is characterised by a bright amber colour, a fresh fragrance and fine bubbles. During the manufacturing process, full attention is given to the quantity and quality of hops used, resulting in a beer rich in flavour. Enjoy the charm of the original lager beer and you will appreciate and understand the Kirin quality as well.
