Orgaziers prepared four official bottlings..
Festival was held for two days for the weekend of 20 and 21 April. The organizers prepared four official bottlings that you could taste for the so-called Premium Vouchers, subjected to a relatively small fee. Official bottlings:
- Mizunara – Yamazaki Distillery, 50% ABV – vatting of a few casks made of Japanese oak, centered of destilates from 1984 – bottle price 52.500 YEN, ab. 1.500 PLZ,
- Chichibu Distillery, 61,8% ABV, first fill bourbon barrel, distilled in 2009, bottled in 2013, cask no. 422 – bottle price 9.850 YEN, ab. 300 PLZ,
- Karuizawa Distillery, 62,4% ABV, sherry butt, distilled in 2000, bottled in 2013, cask no. 7603 – bottle price 8.450 YEN, ab. 240 PLZ (closed distillery),

In addition to official bottlings some distilleries prepared their own special editions, which I mentioned in Part 2 The Mini Stages. I hope to do reviews of some of them later.
