Jura limited edition celebrates island community

by Amy Hopkins

Island distillery Jura has launched a 20-year-old single malt Scotch whisky in celebration of its community and workforce.

Jura One and All has been non-chill-filtered and bottled at a cask strength of 51% without artificial colouring. Its assemblage of casks include American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels, Sherry wood, sparkling Cabernet Franc casks, Cabernet Sauvignon casks and Pinot Noir barriques. Jura, owned by Whyte & Mackay, said the bottling commemorates the “bond” between the communities on Jura, which has around 200 inhabitants. The distillery was reopened on the island 50 years ago. “There’s no better way to mark the distillery team’s dedication and craftsmanship than by creating a limited edition expression in their honour – chosen by them,” said Graham Logan, distillery manager. “In tribute to their passion and tenacity – the shared spirit that each person brings to every last drop – this special whisky is the perfect dram to toast one and all. We can’t wait to hear what people think. ” Jura One and All will be available from 1 September at an RRP of £120 (about US$155). Last year, Jura marked the retirement of its long-serving distillery manager Willie Cochrane with the release of limited edition Jura One for the Road.
