Based on cask samples from a Karuizawa 1972 whisky archived by Elixir Distillers, the Karuizawa Omoiyari blend is being offered in a charity sale organized by Whisky.Auction.

Only six bottles of the Karuizawa Omoiyari blend, using “some of the most remarkable and sought-after whiskies ever to be produced in Japan”, were produced by Elixir with the whisky said to feature the sherry-matured flavors of Karuizawa against Elixir’s bourbon casks.

Bottle Number One of Elixir Distillery’s Karuizawa Omoiyari will be auctioned as part of a charity sale organised by Whisky.Auction.

All proceeds from the sale, including buyers’ commission, will be donated to The Drinks Trust charity, which is currently helping hospitality professionals in the UK dealing with the repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic.

Other whiskies featured in the charity sale include: Hanyu Ichiro’s Malt The Joker, Pappy Van Winkle 23 Years Old, Glenfarclas 30 Years Old and Longmorn 23 Years Old.
