Here's another chance at one of the rarest and most desirable whiskies on planet earth: An astonishing Karuizawa has arrived - this time drawn from a single single sherry butt and aged for 35 years. Sub titled "The Water of Life" in Chinese text on the front label and usually available via ballot only, it ranks amongst the world’s most collectable wood-aged spirits. We have one only of the 473 bottles that were drawn from cask #7417 in 2015. It comes beautifully packaged in a heavy decanter style bottle and black wooden presentation case. Excellent condition. 55% Alc./Vol.

Japanese whiskies have been delivering remarkable returns compared with other segments, and the most sought after of all are the whiskies from the now silent Karuizawa distillery. As one of the top performers on the UK auction scene in recent years, this bottle represents an opportunity to secure a piece of Japanese distilling history. It's ironic that the vision and persistence of Karuizawa's proprietors was commercially unsustainable during its operation. The cult distillery ceased production in 2000 and completely closed in 2011.
