Explore the Distinctive Flavours of Jura Whisky: A Journey Beyond Tradition

by | Feb 19, 2024 | Promotions

Off the western coast of Scotland lies an island—remote, at times wild, yet perpetually beautiful. Home to roughly 212 islanders, it boasts one road, one pub, and one distillery.

This island is devoted to whisky. Established in 1810 and reborn in 1963, the Jura distillery embodies the island’s greatest endeavour and reward. Inspired by its history and rugged surroundings. Jura’s community crafts single malt whisky with an unwavering passion for the art of whisky making. Resulting in a distinctive house style that sets it apart from its island neighbours. Their signature whisky is characterised by its fruity, aromatic, and coastal notes.

Today, nearly every family on the island has a connection to the distillery, reflecting the deep-rooted significance of Jura whisky within the community. Each sip of Jura whisky encapsulates the dedication of its island makers.

Jura Journey

Jura Journey

A welcoming single malt whisky that transports you to the Isle of Jura, light and fruity with a hint of gentle spice. This perfect union of Jura and hand-selected American white oak ex-bourbon casks yields notes of creamy vanilla, pecan pie, and a touch of soft cinnamon and fresh pear. An ideal introduction to the Jura range.

Jura 10-Year-Old

Jura 10-Year-Old

Crafted in exceptionally tall stills and matured for 10 years in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels. The final touch is a finish in the finest aged Oloroso Sherry casks from Jerez, Spain. A sweet, smooth whisky with flavours of rich dark chocolate and vanilla cream throughout.

Jura 12-Year-Old

This is Jura at its most intense, yet it remains an approachable whisky that serves as the perfect accompaniment to any gathering, just as our tiny island community enjoys it. Bourbon cask maturation and an aged Oloroso Sherry finish produce a honeyed sweetness with notes of warm spice, banana, soft citrus, and a finish of freshly ground coffee and dark chocolate.

Jura Seven Wood

Layers of complexity and flavour emerge from a maturation journey that begins in American White Oak ex-bourbon casks before a portion of the whisky is split between six different virgin oak casks sourced from various regions of France. The result is a fruity and spicy whisky with flavours of crème caramel, baked peach, and sweet liquorice.
