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.
The Karuizawa Distillery was established in 1955 in the foothills of Mount Asama, an active volcano north-west of Tokyo.
Bottled in 2012 by Number One Drinks, this single malt has been crafted from hand-selected European oak sherry casks of whisky distilled in 1999 and 2000, the final vintages of Karuizawa.
This particular bottling was made exclusive to the Speciality Drinks (The Whisky Exchange).
