Karuizawa Distillery Single Malt Japanese Whisky

Karuizawa began its journey as a modest distillery nestled in the foothills of Mount Asama, an active volcano that last erupted in 2004. Founded by Suzuki Chuji, the second son of the Ajinomoto brand, the distillery transitioned from brewing sake to whisky distillation in 1939. In 1949, the company underwent a name change to Miraku Breweries Corp, and in 1955, the Karuizawa distillery was established near Mount Asama, marking the initiation of whisky production. During the mid-2000s, around the time when the distillery ceased production, it became a subsidiary of Kirin Holdings. Eventually, in 2011, the distillery was closed and dismantled, with all remaining stock sold. As a silent distillery boasting exceptional maturation, Karuizawa Whisky has evolved into a coveted collector's item.
