The Prooftag authentication system which is used by Bordeaux winemakers is not currently widely used in the spirits industry. Each Prooftag seal features a unique code which can be authenticated through the new Elixir Distillers website at ElixirDistillers.com or directly at Prooftag.com. Once a Prooftag seal is broken it cannot be resealed.
Commenting on the launch, Oliver Chilton, Whisky Maker at Elixir Distillers, said: “With most casks of Karuizawa already released, the Golden Geishas are some of the very few new bottlings coming to market, and it is this rarity that makes them the ideal candidates for our first use of the Prooftag system. Rarity and high demand offers temptation to fraudsters and so our Prooftag system offers the opportunity for buyers to authenticate their bottle, and find out all relevant information about the bottling.”
The Karuizawa Golden Geisha 31 and 33 Year Old’s are now available exclusively via a ballot at thewhiskyexchange.com for the respective RRP’s of £2500,00 and £2750,00.
