The Karuizawa distillery, renowned for producing small-batch Japanese whiskey, was located on the southern slope of an active volcano, Mount Asama. Despite its size, it gained a reputation for its high-quality whiskey. Unfortunately, the distillery ceased production in 2000 and closed for good in 2011. Since then, Karuizawa whiskey has been sold at auctions for record-breaking prices, with one rare bottle fetching over half a million USD.
Now, whiskey enthusiasts have the chance to acquire a 1999-2000 vintage Karuizawa Single Malt Whisky edition, enclosed in custom bottle art adorned with a 24-carat gold leaf. The artwork celebrates Japan’s martial arts history and the Samurai code. The intricate leaf design was created by David Stanley Hewett, a local Karuizawa artist.
While visually stunning and a luxurious addition to any collection, this limited edition whiskey comes with a hefty price tag of $50,000 USD per bottle, available for purchase on Dekanta. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of Japanese whiskey history.
