Got £6,000 spare cash? No, seriously... Why not spend it on a Karuizawa masterclass, while supporting the redevelopment of Nepal following the earthquake that happened earlier this year.
Taking place on Saturday 3 October at The Whisky Show, the tasting, presented by Dave Broom, will include five of the now closed distillery's whiskies: Karuizawa 1981 aged in a sherry cask, Karuizawa 29yo aged in a bourbon cask, sherry cask aged Karuizawa 30yo, Karuizawa 1970 42yo and Karuizawa 1983. The latter has been bottled exclusively for the occasion, and one of the 50 70cl bottles will go to each attendee.
There are 45 tickets available, which will be allocated at random via a ballot. You can register your interest online.
Proceeds will be shared between five charities that are working to help victims of the earthquake – Community Action Nepal, Help Nepal Network, Maiti Nepal, The Nepal Trust and SWAT.
Considering some Karuizawa bottles now go for up to £10k, this isn't the worst deal you could make this week...
