Our home is the Isle of Jura, a remote island off the west coast of Scotland. This ancient landscape of wild mountains, peaceful lochs, and raging seas is home to just 200 people. As the one and only distillery on the island, the craft of whisky making is at the heart of Jura’s small community. Established in 1810 (then known as the “Small Isles Distillery”) Jura has been crafting island matured whisky for two centuries. With peat being the main source of fuel on the island, the original distillery produced a smoky style of whisky. With the release of Jura 10 we are returning to this original style, first produced 207 years ago.
They say time and tide wait for no man. On Jura, by contrast, time is stretched by the changing seasons and tempered by its unique microclimate, with each passing year bringing its own riches. Jura 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is matured for eighteen long years in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and enriched by superior Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux barrels, a unique spirit is created that has truly come of age.
