Jura 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Jura 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The Isle of Jura Distillery was founded in 1963. It is the only distillery on the Isle of Jura, which dates back to 1810 as being the first licensed distillery on Jura. The distillery sources its water from Loch aBhaile-Mhargaidh and is owned by independent bottlers Whyte and Mackay. Situated sixty miles off the western coast of the Scottish mainland, the Isle of Jura is one of the most sparsely populated islands in Scotland it boasts 5,000 red deer, 200 human beings, two churches and just one distillery. The Jura Distillery was founded in 1810 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 represents a fusion of modern distillation techniques with traditional craftsmanship and remains one of the most remote and isolated distilleries on the planet.Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Scottish barley, which is milled at the distillery and mashed with hot water to release its natural sugars. Once the barley has been mashed, it is fermented and then distilled through Juras 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. Jura malts are typically aged in bourbon casks, with some whiskies being finished in sherry. Their whiskies are really said to come of age around 16 years; this is when the whisky really starts to shine. This exciting and new line of Jura whiskies can be described as a hybrid of Highland and Island styles, a harmony that imparts a sweet smokiness onto the spirit. Due to Juras unique microclimate, each year yields its own character, beautifully impacting every spirit. This timeless 18 year old Jura is matured for eighteen lengthy years in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and finished in some of the finest Premier Grand Cru Class Bordeaux barrels. A truly unique spirit, aged to perfection.Pick up your bottle today!
