Jura whisky comes from a place of contrasts. A wild shoreline of craggy rocks battered by the open sea on one side, to secluded sandy bays with calm waters on the other. From the sweetness of Origin to the smokiness of Superstition the nature of the island is reflected in the whisky and you will taste the difference in every drop.
The Isle of Jura is nestled off the West Coast of Scotland. Jura is only 60 miles from Glasgow as the crow flies, but 60 miles has never felt so far away. With one road, one pub, one distillery and one big whirlpool, Jura is as beautiful as it is remote. Which explains why the deer outnumber the 200 strong population by a country mile. George Orwell even went so far as to name it 'the most un-get-able place' while he wrote his classic novel 1984 there.
The original distillery has stood in its spot since 1810 but fell into ruin. In 1963, Jura decided to resurrect it and with it, helped to revive the local community. Ever since then they have been using their incredible tall stills to create a unique range of whiskies. And this range it what set them apart. You see, while some just do sweet and others only do smoky, Jura do both. It may not be traditional, but they have their own way of doing things. It also means there is sure to be something that takes your fancy.
