    Isle of Jura Single Malt Whisky

    Hours away from the Scottish mainland, miles away from ‘ordinary’; Jura might not be the easiest place to make whisky, but we believe it’s the best. One road, one pub and one distillery - and home to a determined community spirit.  Free from distractions, we focus entirely on one thing – making the very best single malt whisky we can.

    The island’s single track road leads to the distillery and island’s only pub which lie at the heart of Jura’s small but passionate community of around 200 people who are vastly outnumbered by the heard of some 5,000 deer.

    Established in 1810, the distillery fell into disrepair and closed in 1901. In 1963, after years of economic depression, the islanders felt it high time to revive the economy by rebuilding Jura’s distillery from scratch; a monumental feat achieved through determination, endeavour and true community spirit.

    On a mission to produce a spirit unlike anything else, the distillery manager William Delmé-Evans, went to extreme lengths to ship unusually tall stills to an island which has been called ‘the most un-get-at-able place’ (by George Orwell, author of 1984, written in a remote farmhouse on Jura). You see, the taller the still, the purer the spirit. It’s the reason why you can taste the difference in every drop.

    Since then, the distillery has flourished, producing expertly crafted, award-winning whisky, as unique as the island it comes from.

    In 2018 Jura proudly takes the next step on its journey, introducing a unique new house style, bottle and packaging design and 5 new whiskies to its Signature Series.

    Each new whisky sees sweetness from American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels combine with a hint of subtle smoke and further enhanced by specially selected casks from around Europe to create our new defining character. For the first time, we marry together the classic styles of Highland and Island malts, and unify these in one remarkable style.

    We start with Journey before moving to 10 and 12 Years Old Jura, and into an entirely new world with Seven Wood and then concluding with 18 Years Old.  Each and every whisky has been created to showcase an incredible new flavour, in their own individual way.

    From cinnamon, pears and pecans to black forest fruits and bitter chocolate, the diversity of flavours gives you approachable and welcoming combinations which will captivate you into the world of Jura.

    With open arms, we welcome you to Jura, a place that’s truly a long way from ordinary.
