Karuizawa Index

The RWK (Rare Whisky Karuizawa) Index tracks the performance of a select collection of bottles from this silent Japanese distillery.

Along with Single Malt Scotch Whisky, certain other classes of whisky are attracting attention from a growing global base of fans. Karuizawa has been experiencing exceptional demand with remaining casked stocks becoming increasingly limited.
