The Karuizawa 1981 Artifices Serie is an exceptional single cask from the now mythical Karuizawa distillery. Bottled in cask strength to express itself in all its intensity, this whisky distilled in 1981 has waited for 33 years in an ex sherry cask before revealing itself to the world.

This Karuizawa is simply splendid, it will transport you in a fruity universe with aromas of rhubarb, candied oranges, prune, strawberry, currant. The influence of the Spanish oak has slowly marked the whisky with noble spice aromas of cardamom, cumin, clove, and greedy notes of cocoa bean and salted butter caramel.

The distillery

The distillery Karuizawa

Karuizawa, the most mythical of all Japanese distilleries, was founded in 1955 by the Mercian Wine Company specialized in Japanese wine and liqueurs.


Built at an altitude of 850 meters on the slopes of Mount Asama, one of the most active volcanoes of the archipelago, the distillery benefited from a microclimate whose high humidity allowed the evaporation of water from the whisky, guaranteeing a high alcoholic degree and an exceptional concentration of aroma.
