When the Karuizawa Distillery ceased production in 2012, only a few casks were recovered from the warehouse and moved to the Chichibu Distillery. The final two vintages from the 1999 and 2000 production, were specially selected, vatted and further matured by the Master Blender of the Chichibu Distillery. The marriage was finished in cask no. 2565.
Karuizawa was distilled, matured and bottled at cask strength. This is a rare bottling is from the Cocktail Series, which was specially released for the Tokyo International Bar Show 2012. Please note wear and tear to the label.
