Jura 10 Year Origin Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Isle of Jura is nestled off the West Coast of Scotland. The original distillery has stood in its spot since 1810 but fell into ruin. In 1963 it was resurrected, and with it the local community revived. Ever since then, they’ve been using Jura’s incredibly tall stills to create a unique range of whiskies. And this range is what sets Jura apart. You see, while some just do sweet and others only smoky, Jura does both. It may not be traditional, but the distillery has its own way of doing things. It also means there’s sure to be something that takes your fancy.
“A good gulp of hot Scotch Whisky at bedtime–it’s not very scientific, but it helps!”
Alexander Fleming, Scottish inventor of penicillin, prescribed it as a cure for the common cold. Today Single Malt Scotch Whiskies are prized by enthusiasts and aficionados the world over for their rarity, age and complexity. By definition these must be produced in Scotland from a single distillery and made entirely from malted barley, using a pot still. The appearance, aroma and flavor of a Single Malt Scotch Whisky can vary widely depending on whether it was produced in the Highlands, Lowlands Islands, Speyside, Islay or Campbelltown regions.
