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.
An extremely rare 35 year old Karuizawa, distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2017 from Cask #6412. With only 505 bottles ever produced, this is an extremely limited and highly collectable bottle. The bottle design was created in collaboration with 3D artist Fazzino, who designed and created the 3D engraving of the snow scene in Japan.
