Karuizawa Whisky - a truly cult distillery
Karuizawa is a legendary whisky distillery in Japan. Karuizawa distillery was founded in 1955 in the foothills of Mount Asama, an active volcano north-west of Tokyo, to make a single malt whisky in as traditional a manner as possible.
At 850 meters above sea level, the distillery is the highest in Japan; low temperatures and high humidity provided an ideal micro-climate for whisky production. The Karuizawa Distillery stopped production in 2000 and completely closed in 2011.
