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 closing in 2011, Karuizawa (the smallest whisky distillery in Japan), has gained significant interest over the last few years.
This is a very special, and very rare, bottle containing one of the oldest Karuizawa whiskies ever produced. Distilled in 1967 and bottled 42 years later in August 2009 from the highly acclaimed cask #6426.
