Aromatic Single Malt from the Isle of Jura

The Isle of Jura is located between the Scotish Westcoast and Islay. The Island is popular for three mountains on the western side, called Paps of Jura. Furthermore Jura is one of the least densely populated islands of Scotland.
The history of Jura Distillery goes back to 1810. The owner of the distillery, Archibald Campell, distilled Whisky until John Ferguson & Sons took over in 1875. They started refurbishing the distillery in 1884. At the beginning of the 20th century they were no longer able to pay the leasehold and had to close the distillery.
In 1958 the two Jura-locals Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith plucked up courage and charged William Delmé Evans to build a very new distillery located at the same place. Some owners changed till now, but the Whisky is still the same: Only 40% vol. alc. – but very complex and aromatic. It comes with a little peat, notes of see salt and almonds. Matured in Bourbon caskets this pure Single Malt is worth the try!
