A limited amount of Karuizawa whiskey Emerald Geishas will finally be up for sale. The Emerald Geishas whiskey is bottled by Elixir Distillers and comes from the now defunct Karuizawa -- which officially closed its doors in 2001. There will be 170 bottles of Karuizawa 33-year-old and 265 bottles of Karuizawa 35-year-old up for sale at The Whiskey Exchange, with early critics expecting a very fast sellout. Complementing the absolute flavor of the whiskey is a beautiful bottle featuring Japanese art forms, combined with hot foil and intricate embellishments.
Karuizawa whiskies are the current leading contender in the Japanese whiskey craze, as bottles have been auctioned and sold for double their original selling price. There is exclusivity tied to a Karuizawa whiskey, as the defunct distiller's product is incredibly renowned and only exists in limited qualities.
