AUGUST auction is now LIVE!

Auction ends on Tuesday 6 September.


Karuizawa – Why So Popular?

The Karuizawa whisky distillery was founded in 1955 by Miraku Brewing Corp to diversify its sake portfolio. Karuizawa was built beneath the formidable volcano of Mount Asama where the climate was deemed particularly attractive for whisky production – it was even claimed that the ivy that covered the warehouse kept the temperature and humidity at perfect levels to mature whisky.

Sadly for us, production was mothballed by the turn of the millennium; the owners, without the benefit of a crystal ball, decided production was no longer financially sustainable, and by 2012 the land the distillery rests on was sold. Now, due to their scarcity and intense, savoury, sweet spiciness, Karuizawa bottlings have exploded in value in a final salute to the Spirit of Asama.

We have no fewer than 36 Karuizawas to bid on; take a close look at Karuizawa 1971 Noh #1842, Karuizawa 1981 Cask #78 Prendre Le Rhythme LMdW and the Karuizawa 1990 Cask #679 and Karuizawa 1984 Cask #3663 Sherry Cask.

Be the first to bid!

Get bidding, and good luck! The Whisky Auction team.
