A tasty introduction to Jura's single malts.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 in order to release its natural sugars. Once the barley has been mashed, it is fermented and then distilled through Jura's 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. The stills' unusual size and shape emphasizes the high esther notes of the barley, and produces a noticeably lighter and fruitier whisky.
