    Although Blanton's is made by Buffalo Trace it is owned by Takara Shuzo, a Japanese company. They set the prices, both there and here.

    But prices on American whiskey in Japan have generally come down relative to U.S. prices in recent years, which I suspect has something to do with the dollar's value relative to the yen.

    Not sure about currecny exchange, so much as degregulation in the industry. Can't find the article right now. If you're curious you can search JETRO. I found this out as I was searching about getting a liquor license here.
