The legendary Karuizawa Distillery, founded in 1955, is tucked away in the scenic foothills of Mount Asama. Situated in a popular mountain resort area, this active volcano base houses Japan’s loftiest distillery at an impressive 850m above sea level. Regrettably, in 2000, the distillery ended its production and was preserved indefinitely.
This exceptional single cask was carefully chosen by the esteemed Martin Tonder Smith, specifically for the Norwegian market.

It symbolizes a sublime fusion of Karuizawa‘s dedication to quality and Martin’s expertise.
