All about making whisky
Quantities limited to one bottle per customer and per transaction.
The beautiful dark blue pigment used by Hokusai, called Prussian Blue, was a new, rare and expensive material in Japan at the time, imported from England through China. This kind of spare-no-expense effort is similar to the Karuizawa distillery in late 20th century when they used only Golden Promise to make their whisky. In this bottle, you will find the essence of the Karuizawa distillery.
Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji is a series of landscape prints by the Japanese artist Hokusai. Each depicts Mount Fuji from different locations in various weather conditions. The label of this Karuizawa features one of these striking prints. A unique bottling drawn from casks of 1999 and 2000 vintages and bottled at cask strength.

The Karuizawa distillery was built in 1955 in the town of the same name, in the prefecture of Nagano surrounded by the Japanese Alps. Japanese whisky generally has a very good reputation, but Karuizawa is especially sought after and appreciated by connoisseurs; it has accumulated an impressive number of medals in competitions. Just like Macallan, it is a whisky that owes much of its character to the type of barley that is used: (‘Golden Promise’) and to ageing in sherry casks. Production stopped in 2000 and bottles are becoming increasingly rare.
