In 1955, the Karuizawa Distillery was established under the slopes of Asama – the highest distiller in Japan. In 2001, it was closed and dismantled.

This extremely limited offering comes from the final vintages that were matured in European Oak Sherry casks and bottled in 2012.

Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
UK-based company Number One Drinks purchased the remaining stocks of Karuizawa’s malt Whiskies in 2011.
The warehouses of Karuizawa were covered with ivy, which was thought to control the temperature difference.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
In 1959, the Karuizawa Distillery became the first distillery to export Whisky overseas.
