Located in Nagano Prefecture, the Karuizawa Distillery was founded in 1956. It was never a large-scale operations, with an annual capacity of 150 thousand litres of pure alcohol it was on par with the Scottish Edradour and Kilchoman in that respect. Closed down in 2011, it gained a cult status only afterwards, mainly thanks to the UK-based Number One Drinks Company, which gradually bought up all the stocks and then proceeded to promote the Karuizawa whiskies. Because of the small scale of the production, most expressions of their whiskies are limited batches, mostly a few hundred bottles each.
In this case, we are talking about a bottle from a strictly limited edition, consisting of only 137 individually numbered bottles. An extremely rare whisky from an ex-sherry butt, in which it spent 45 years prior to bottling. It was not coloured, chill-filtered or diluted – it reached the bottle in exactly the same state as it left the cask.
