The Isle of Jura is nestled off the West Coast of Scotland. It’s only 60 miles from Glasgow as the crow flies, but 60 miles has never felt so far away. With only one road, one pub, one distillery and one big whirlpool, Jura is as beautiful as it is remote. Which explains why the deer outnumber the 200-strong population by a country mile. George Orwell even went so far as to name it ‘the most un-get-at-able place’ while he wrote his classic novel 1984 here.
The original distillery has stood in its spot since 1810 but fell into ruin. In 1963, we decided to resurrect it and with it, we helped to revive the local community.
Ever since then, we’ve been using our incredibly tall stills to create a unique range of whiskies. And this range is what sets us apart. You see, while some just do sweet and others only smoky, we do both. It may not be traditional, but we have our own way of doing things. It also means there’s sure to be something that takes your fancy.
