Karuizawa Distillery was established in 1955 in the foothills of Mount Asama, an active volcano north-west of Tokyo, to make single malt in as traditional a manner as possible. At 850 metres above sea level, the distillery was the highest above sea levels in Japan; low temperatures and high humidity provided an ideal micro-climate for whisky production.
This particular Karuizawa 2000 is “The Rising Sun” release. It is a single cask whisky distilled in cask # 8123 last 2000. It is presented in an original box, this is truly a collector’s item!
