    Jura: A Long Way From Ordinary

    By Joseph Pettigrew 9 months ago

    The island distillery’s new signature range launched exclusively with The Whisky Shop and is already proving popular with customers

    Lying off the north eastern coast of Islay, the island of Jura is around the same size as its neighbour, but while Islay boasts eight whisky distilleries and more in development, Jura is home to just one. The Isle of Jura Distillery was founded in 1810, predating the official opening of some of Islay’s biggest names including Bunnahabhain (1881), Caol Ila (1846), Lagavulin (1816) and Laphroaig (1815). While it may have historic roots, the Jura distillery’s success today stems from our more recent past, having been rebuilt in 1963 by local estate owners after an unfortunate period of disrepair.

    By Joseph Pettigrew 2 years ago

    Jura joins in the Fèis Ìle celebrations with its annual “Tastival” limited edition release

    Despite being a ferry-ride away from the Queen of the Hebrides, Jura’s eponymous distillery takes part in Islay’s annual Festival of Music and Malt, or Fèis Ìle as it’s called in the mother tongue, with its own day dubbed Jura Tastival. Each year, the distillery encourages fans to discover the different sides of Jura with a variety of engaging tasting events that bring the characteristics of the island, the distillery and its whisky to life.
