 Karuizawa closed its operations in 2001

Each of the 299 bottles originates from the country’s fabled Karuizawa distillery, which closed its doors in 2001.

The collection looks set to break £500,000 ($623,305). Even the distillery's cheapest bottles generally sell for in excess of £1,600 ($2,000).

The highlight is an ultra-rare bottle of Karuizawa 1960, one of only 14 in existence. Another achieved $118,000 in 2015.

The sale will run from April 5-17.
