Jura Whisky has today unveiled a new limited edition expression, created in celebration of Jura’s community and the team of distillery workers who craft the whisky. Chosen by them, it’s fittingly named One And All.
This celebratory 20 year old single malt, which is non-chill filtered and natural colour, pays tribute to the distillery team and island community who make the whisky what it is. A whisky with the community at the heart of it, this small batch release (51% ABV – Cask strength) is available globally today.
The community on Jura, a remote island nestled off the West Coast of Scotland, has a unique bond with whisky. Around 200 people inhabit the island’s landscape, outnumbered by more than 5,000 red deer which roam the island’s vast, empty plains. Together, the Diurachs (the name for people who live on the island) and the distillery have rebuilt a local economy since re-opening the distillery over 50 years ago.
The realities of living on a remote island in a small community means that everyone has to work together for the benefit of one and all, and this attitude is mirrored at the Jura distillery. On the 6th of February 2017, the distillery team got together to choose this year’s Limited Edition bottling. An uncommon single malt, One And All is matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and specially prepared with Jura aged in Sherry wood, Sparkling Cabernet Franc casks, Cabernet Sauvignon casks and Pinot Noir barriques.
“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. 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. ” – Graham Logan, Distillery Manager
