From one of the major collectors of whisky in Europe to now respected author  on collectible spirits, Mr Ulf Buxrud certainly knows his stuff.  And in depth.

So when he writes, I like you, should read what he has to say.

So, let me leave it to Mr Buxrud to describe his latest tome…

A tale of the supreme collectible, enjoyable and valuable iconic series ever made.

It is a tale of the supreme collectible, enjoyable, and valuable iconic whisky series ever made.  A near-complete (54 of 58 versions) series was sold at Bonham’s auction house in Hong Kong November 20, 2020, for USD 1.5 million.

The book unfolds the story about the magnificent Playing Card Series from Hanyu and Chichibu Whisky Distilleries in Japan, distilled by the Akuto family and bottled by Ichiro Akuto-san.

The book is a 170-page book of coffee table size (29x29x1cm) and quality is near art book style. Its content encompasses the story of the Chichibu-Kikusui, Hanyu, Chichibu distilleries, and the Akuto family.

A chapter is dedicated to the complete Playing card series and how it started. Here, each bottle is the ‘objets d’art’, occupying a full page. The opposite page contains my 58 tasting notes, technical descriptions, and the flip side of the bottles.

All 58 bottle pictures are from my own Playing Card Series collection. Other sections comprise the series aftermath, auctions, rules and data, fakes, and frauds.

A special chapter called Passing time deals with experimental mixology on account of the Playing card series and summarizing tasting notes.
