Le Clos has launched a $300,000 world-exclusive collection of vintage Karuizawa, the “world’s most sought-after Japanese whisky”.
Karuizawa ceased producing whisky in 2000 and is now known as a ‘silent distillery’. Famed for its intense, sherry cask-matured drams, Karuizawa’s popularity has been rapidly growing in recent years, with demand skyrocketing and the number of casks available falling, as prices are rising.
The collection will be showcased in a bespoke, Japanese-inspired display at Le Clos’ Dubai Airport Concourse A outlet. The 27 bottles which make up the Geisha Series are the finest expressions of Karuizawa whisky, which have been aged for 29, 30, 31 and 50 years, and were bottled in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990.
