Inside, Jura is a classic 1960s distillery – large rooms, a clear flow from a semi-lauter tun, stainless steel washbacks, and a capacious stillhouse with very tall (7.7m) stills with a capacity of more than 20,000 litres. Clearly it was not built solely to satisfy the thirst of the local populace. Relatively short ferments give Jura background rigidity – meaning that this is a whisky that needs time (or active casks) to open fully.
Although originally founded in 1810, the distillery changed ownership 4 times in the following century and was closed and dismantled in 1901. Then, in 1963, two of the island’s landowners, Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith, decided to start whisky-making once more – predominantly as an incentive to stop any further decline in the island’s population. With financial backing from Leith-based blender Charles Mackinlay & Co. The distillery has been in the ownership of Whyte & Mackay since 1993.

Nose: Very fruity nose; tinned pineapples, melons, lemons, apples and pears followed by floral notes – potpourri and fresh garden roses. A drop of water entices the addition of Parma Violet sweets.
Taste: The taste mirrors what was encountered on the nose with the addition of cinnamon and cloves. An intriguing earthy note adds to the complexity. With water the fruity notes become more dominant.
