Founded in 1955 with a keen eye on producing high quality whisky, Karuizawa was mothballed in 2000 and since then has achieved the kind of mythical stature reserved for only a select few distillerie.
During production they solely used Golden Promise barley imported from Scotland - the barley was considered vital for long maturation. Direct fired stills, Sherry casks sourced from Spain and an on-site cooperage all contributed to the high quality of their whisky.
In 2011 Number One Drinks bought the remaining stock and itr has been instrumental in the phoenix-like resurrection of a distillery that rarely released any bottles during its lifetime.
This bottling is part of a new series for 2015 featuring Geishas on the labels.
