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 they 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 they have been instrumental in the phoenix- like resurrection of a distillery that rarely released any bottles during its life time.

A big beast of a heavily sherried Karuizawa, this has been bottled by the Number One drinks company.
