About the distillery
Karuizawa distillery was a Japanese whisky distillery. It was located at Miyota, a town on the southern slopes of an active complex volcano, Mount Asama, in Kitasaku District, Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
Established in 1955, the distillery began production in 1956. It was owned by Mercian Corporation and was the smallest in Japan. It was mothballed in 2000, and closed in 2011; the land on which it had stood was sold in 2012.
After the distillery was sadly closed in 2001, Karuizawa has achieved legendary status with whisky enthusiasts, its whisky becoming extremely collectable.
This beautifully presented Karuizawa was distilled around 1984 or 1985 and matured for 30 years until bottling in 2015, limited to only 404 bottles from a single bourbon cask #6432
Ten casks were bottled in 2014 and 2015, each with a different Samurai depicted on the label.
