Located on the West Coast of Scotland is the Isle of Jura, where the red deer population outnumbers the human population by 25 to 1. The island lies only 60 miles from Glasgow (as the crow flies), yet can take rather a long time to reach. It consists of one road, one pub, one distillery and one shop and is often described as remote. In fact, while writing the classic "1984", George Orwell described the island as "The most un-getable place".

Originally built in 1810, the distillery fell into disrepair and wasn't revived until the 1960's by two local estate owners.

From the Jura website, 'This single malt assemblage has been specially prepared from freshly filled Bourbon barrels and Jura that has been aged in Sherry wood, sparkling Cabernet Franc cask, Cabernet Sauvignon casks and Pinot Noir barriques. Non-chill filtered, natural in colour and with a natural strength, this whisky is a true product of its environment.'
