TOKYO -- Kirin will begin exporting whisky distilled in Japan to China and Australia in April, hoping to cash in on the spirit's rising popularity in Asia.

The Japanese drinks maker, which faces an aging, shrinking population at home, will serve up its Fuji whisky in the Asian market. This is its first significant foray abroad since it launched in the U.S. last year and in France in 2020.
