Glenfiddich stands as an enduring symbol of craftsmanship and innovation in the realm of exquisite Scotch whiskies. The Glenfiddich 29-year-old Grand Yozakura marks a groundbreaking moment in the world of spirits.

The marriage of Scottish and Japanese craftsmanship creates a sensory experience that transcends the ordinary.

The fusion of Scottish and Japanese influences in this innovative release invites enthusiasts to embark on a sensory adventure, savouring the legacy of Glenfiddich while embracing the allure of the East. As the first single malt Scotch whisky finished in rare Japanese Awamori casks, Grand Yozakura is a beacon of sophistication, offering a taste that transcends time and tradition.
