From the Isle of Jura comes the subtly briny sea goddess 10 YO single malt.

60 miles off the western coast of Scottish mainland you will find the Isle of Jura, a sparsely inhabited island of Scotland…and we are not kidding when we say sparse- residents include 200 humans, and about 5,000 deer. On the island there is one road, one church, and one distillery (A Scot's life essentials). The Isle of Jura distillery was founded in 1963, but its facilities date back as far as 1810, as being the first licensed distillery on Jura. They are owned by independent bottlers Whyte and Mackay.

The Old Jura Distillery was founded by Laird Archibald Campbell, and sits alongside the Corryvreckan Whirlpool. Nearly a century after it was opened, the distillery was dismantled due to a land dispute, and remained closed until 1963. Today, the Jura Distillery is a curious hybrid creature, with its a fusion of modern distillation techniques and traditional craftsmanship, it remains one of the most remote and isolated distilleries on the planet.

Their Whiskeys are just as curiously delightful. Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Scottish barley, milled and mashed on-site and distilled through Jura's enormous 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. The distillery sources their water from Loch a’Bhaile-Mhargaidh. Despite the fact that the water flows through a great deal of peat, the Whisky barely has any peaty character. This is quite different than its Scottish siblings across the way. Instead Jura Whisky takes its character from the sea, after all, it is surrounded by it. Isle of Jura’s 10 Year Old has a fruity character, with a medium body, accented by ginger and coffee, and the characteristic slight briny taste of Jura malts. The majority of Jura malt is aged in Bourbon casks.
