Working with The Karuizawa Distillery

The new Karuizawa Distillery was built in 2021 by Mr Shigeru Totsuka-san, with ex-Karuizawa Master Distiller, Osama Uchibori-san, as his adviser and ex-Karuizawa Distiller, Yoshiyuki Nakazato-san, taking on the role of Master Distiller.

Situated in the town of Karuizawa itself, the distillery’s setting at the foothills of Mount Asama is stunning, with year round vistas that range from vibrant green and yellow forests in the summer months, to gleaming snow covered peaks that attract skiers from around the globe in the winter.

Mr Totsuka-san and his team are more than aware of the rich legacy that comes with the distillery name, and they are keen to protect this with everything they have. It is for this reason that they have chosen to use only top quality sherry casks, and each of these has a minimum aging requirement of 10 years, ensuring that when bottles finally hit the market, they will be of the highest standard.
