A rare bottle of 1964 Karuizawa will lead Spink's Exceptional Whisky and Spirits auction in Hong Kong on October 13.

Karuizawa Spink whisky
Karuizawa was a celebrated Japanese distillery

Karuizawa was one of Japan's most celebrated distilleries. It shut down production in 2000; the limited edition bottlings of its remaining stock are highly prized.

Last month a complete set of the company's Geisha series realised $142,179 in a sale at Bonhams Hong Kong.

This is one of only 143 bottles of this 48-year-old edition, which was bottled in 2012.

It's valued at $24,500-30,950.
