A full set of the famous malt card whiskies from the Hanyu distillery is hard to find and much sought after when it appears. This set – the
thirteen bottles representing the 13 cards in a full suit of Spades – was made up of whiskies distilled during the years 1985 to 2000. Japanese whisky is increasingly challenging its older Scottish counterpart with improved techniques and innovative packaging and
marketing. This is reflected in growing demand at auction especially for bottles from distilleries which are no longer in operation.
