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 distilleries. During production it solely used Golden Promise barley imported from Scotland - the Golden Promise 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 it has been instrumental in the phoenix-like resurrection of a distillery that rarely released any bottles during its life time.

This beautifully packaged Japonisme Edition is one of only 60 released this year exclusively for La Maison du Whisky. The design celebrates the influence Japanese culture has had on French art and the elegant balance of the presentation has been designed to reflect the single malt it encases.

Accompanying the large bottle are two miniatures containing the malts blended to produce the Japonisme. One sherry cask and one bourbon cask.
