In celebration of the launch of Grand Yozakura, its latest limited-edition expression, Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky has partnered with premier denim brand 3sixteen to create a highly limited run of custom denim jackets. With hand-stitched embroidery, reminiscent of Japanese sashiko repairs, the collaboration honors Japan’s vast cultural influence on the world while celebrating the launch of Glenfiddich’s all-new Grand Yozakura expression.
Grand Yozakura is an all-new 29-Year-Old whisky and the world’s first Scotch finished in oak casks that previously held the oldest distilled alcoholic spirit in Japan: Awamori.
Each of the limited-edition denim jackets is made in the USA and hand-embroidered by Raggedy Threads’ Jamie Wong. The design showcases 3sixteen’s signature broken stitch, outlining beautiful sakura shapes. Paying homage to the tradition of Yozakura (a tribute to the viewing of Japanese cherry blossoms at night), the jackets’ denim holds a deep, inky black color complete with light pink or black stitching. They became available via social media drop Tuesday (5/9).
