Jura's Choice.

Established in 1810 on the Isle of Jura, north-west of the Island (and whisky region) of Islay. As with many other Scotch distilleries, Jura went through a rough patch in the first half of the 20th century. It wasn't until 1960, when two local estate owners, Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith rebuilt the distillery and introduced taller stills that allowed Jura to create a wider mix of malts. Jura’s Whiskies are just as unique as their place – a range of rich, seafaring Whiskies – some lightly peated, others carrying a heavier peated profile.

Isle of Jura 16 YO Diurachs’ Own is the dram of choice for the people of Jura. The 16 YO embodies the character of the islanders, the old legends, dramatic landscapes and island mysteries. It was matured for 14 years in American white oak casks before it was moved for a flavour finale and aged in Oloroso Sherry casks. Diurachs’ Own is an experience that must be sipped slowly, and you cannot be rushed in doing so. Sit back, relax, have some apricot-stuffed lamb, and enjoy a glass. Or two.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
The number of stills in the Jura distillery were expanded from two to four, in 1978.
