Jura is a remote island off the West Coast of Scotland. Only 60 miles from the mainland yet it feels like an entire world away; an ancient landscape of wild mountains, peaceful lochs and stormy seas.With just one road, one pub, one distillery and a very distinct micro-climate, it’s not an easy place to make whisky. Founded in 1810, the distillery collapsed at the end of the 19th century and fell into ruin. Despite this and the two World Wars which followed, their Diurach's spirit remained. In 1963, the distillery was rebuilt to help revive the small island community. With it, true community spirit was born.
Created for the Jura Whisky Festival in 2014, this whisky was initially aged in former bourbon barrels then finished in six different varieties of French oak. It has flavours of apple, almond and toffee with notes oak, bacon and herbs. This finish is long with a clear oaky influence.
