Jura unveils Tide and Time 21yo single malts

May 13, 2019by Melita Kiely

Single malt whisky producer Jura has launched two 21-year-old expressions to celebrate the distillery’s island home, called Tide and Time.

Jura 21 Year Old Time is a global travel retail-exclusive that has been matured in American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels before being finished in ex-peated malt casks. The whisky is said to have citrus, grassy notes combined with a salted peat smoke edge. Jura Time will be released in small batches, with each bottle detailing the year of bottling to indicate the “subtle variations” in the batches as they are put together each year. Bottled at 47.2% abv, Jura Time has an RRP of £150 (US$195). Jura 21 Year Old Tide, bottled at 46.7% abv, will be made available in domestic markets. Richard Trimby, global travel retail director, Whyte & Mackay, said: “The worldwide relaunch of Jura in global travel retail has driven significant commercial success with momentum building in all key regions globally. “The addition of the new Jura 21 Year Old Time reinforces our commitment to offering our customers prestige and limited whiskies of outstanding quality to drive penetration and spend in travel retail stores.” Jura launched a new core range of whiskies last year, adding a smoky flavour profile to the brand.
