Karuizawa Japanese craft whisky distillery

Japanese whisky to drink

 Fortunately Japanese Whisky has became very popular for last 10 years but it became not for drinking but for instagramer & scalper (unofficial reseller).
Some "Japanese whisky" is just bottled in Japan.
So we would like to make opportunities to drink whisky made by real whisky distillery in Japan. 


Single Origin Japanese tea

The most of today's Japanese tea is made from one same cultivar Yabukita but there were many local cultivars before. Those local cultivars had been disappearing since 1970s however a few curious and ambitious tea farmers are refocusing on those.
So we would like to offer the best cellection of local cultivar Japanese tea Renaissance.
