The Karuizawa Ruby Geishas – Japanese Whisky News


We are very pleased to announce a very special pair of whiskies, the penultimate bottles in the critically acclaimed Karuizawa Geisha series – The Karuizawa Ruby Geishas.

After eight years of releases, the Geisha series is almost complete. The Ruby Geisha pair consists of a 34-year-old and a 38-year-old whisky, each matured in a sherry butt. They both display the distinctive Karuizawa sherry-cask-matured style, bringing together rich, sweet and savoury notes into an intense but balanced whole.

As whiskies from this long-closed Japanese distillery are so rare and sought-after, the very limited numbers of bottles available will be sold via ballot. Each bottle will be balloted separately, but each entrant will only be able to win one of the ballots to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy these whiskies.

Karuizawa Ruby Geisha 34 Year Old Cask #7582 is priced at £18,000 and 38 Year Old Cask #3668 at £20,000.

The ballot will run from 1am BST Thursday 16 September 2021 to 11.59pm BST on Tuesday 21 September 2021. Details of how to enter the ballots are below..
