This time, retaining the traditional recipe, the whisky is reintroduced with a refreshed label design starting with the Japanese market.

Comment from the 5th Generation Head, Mr. John Grant:

I take great pride in being able to release the premium blended Scotch whisky 'Glen Doone' in Japan. This bottle is the culmination of the skill of our seasoned Master Blender. Various distinctive single malts, combined with his adept blending techniques, gave birth to this Glen Doone.

Comment from Production Manager, Mr. Callum Fraser:

As the Production Manager at J&G Grant Co., I took the lead in the re-release of the "Glen Doone" brand. I am delighted to be able to introduce Glen Doone to Japan.

Creating high-quality blended Scotch whisky has been a challenging yet rewarding endeavor. Through sourcing and blending excellent grain whisky and a wonderful selection of single malt whiskies, we were able to craft a blended Scotch whisky with truly remarkable aroma and flavor.
