Karuizawa distillery was a Japanese whisky distillery located at Miyota, a town on the southern slopes of an active complex volcano, Mount Asama.
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.
That year the UK-based Number One Drinks Company bought the remaining stocks. The remaining whisky is now a legend of the whisky world.
Part of a twin release of Karuizawas of the same vintage. At the time of release, this was the first Bourbon cask Karuizawa. Certainly an interesting dram from the distillery which is famed more for its sherried production.
