Isle of Jura Distillery

Isle of Jura Distillery is located on the Hebridean island of Jura (near Islay). Unlike some of its heavier Islay neighbours, Isle of Jura is a lightly peated, smooth, elegant and dry malt, with a subtle acacia honey aftertaste.

Jura’s range of malts include a 10, 16 and 21 year old and one named Superstition.

The first official distillery on Jura was built in 1810 but there is evidence that some distilling took place on the island as far back as 1502. The distillery has been expanded over the years but still occupies the same site, draws its water from the same natural source and remains the only distillery on the island. The distillery is owned by Whyte and Mackay.
