Situated sixty miles off the western coast of the Scottish mainland, the Isle of Jura is one of the most sparsely populated islands in Scotland — it boasts 5,000 red deer, 200 human beings, two churches and just one distillery. The Jura Distillery was founded in 1810 by Laird Archibald Campbell, and sits alongside the Corryvreckan Whirlpool. Nearly a century after it was opened, the distillery was dismantled due to a land dispute, and remained closed until 1963. "It was our intention to produce a Highland-type malt differing from the typically peaty stuff last produced in 1900." said Delme' Evans, the architect and master distiller who set about restoring the distillery to its original glory in the 1960s. "My primary aim was to construct an economic distillery within the space available. Everything had to be simple and done by hand." Today, the Jura Distillery represents a fusion of modern distillation techniques with traditional craftsmanship, and remains one of the most remote and isolated distilleries on the planet. Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Scottish barley, which is milled at the distillery and mashed with hot water in order to release its natural sugars. Once the barley has been mashed, it is fermented and then distilled twice through Jura's 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. The stills' unusual size and shape emphasizes the high esther notes of the barley, and produces a noticeably lighter and fruitier whisky. Following distillation, Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky Brooklyn Edition is matured in three different types of casks: American casks that were previously used to age bourbon, European oak casks previously used to mature Amoroso Sherry and traditional oak casks previously used to age pinot noir. As a result, the whisky has an aroma of berries, black currants and figs that give way to light notes of coffee, citrus and sherry on the palate. The finish is long and complex, with touches of fruit, ginger and oak mingling with each other. "Some places, some people just give you a feeling that you're thinking the same or you have the same sort of sense of humor," explains Willie Tate, the master distiller at Jura Distillery, when asked why he crafted a Scotch in honor of the New York City borough. "And I find that when I go to Brooklyn." Pick up a bottle today!
