Jura Bottles a Festival of European Flavours with new Limited Edition Malt
Jura Single Malt Whisky today, 11th May, announces the launch of its Tastival 2017 bottling, a unique Limited Edition single malt that marks the distillery’s annual island whisky festival, set to take place on 1 June 2017.
The festival celebrates new ways to enjoy whisky through exciting flavour experiences that everyone can enjoy – whether new to whisky or a well-established fan – and Jura’s Tastival 2017 bottling fully embraces this ethos.
This Non Chill-Filtered, cask strength Limited Edition expression marries some of Jura’s finest aged spirits, is enhanced in both first fill American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels and hand-selected Graham’s Port Pipes sourced from Portugal’s lush Douro Valley. Customers will get notes of chewy liquorice, black forest fruits and creamy white chocolate on the nose, and orange zest, walnut cake, glazed pineapple and Crème De Cassis on the aftertaste.
Jura Tastival 2017 is the first Limited Edition release to be overseen by new Jura Distillery Manager, Graham Logan, who took over from Willie Cochrane in September 2016.
“Tastival is all about welcoming people to Jura with open arms – not only to our island festival, but to our whisky – whether you’re a single malt expert or are trying it for the first time.
The creativity that goes into our Tastival event programme is well reflected in this Limited Edition expression, meaning everyone can enjoy a taste of our Festival – whether they can make it to the island or not.”
Tastival guests will have an exclusive first try of this year’s Limited Edition bottling at the island festival on 1 June, where the whisky will be available to buy. A full event programme, plus information on localised Tastival events to take place in Europe will be announced in the coming weeks.
Jura Tastival 2017 will be available online and in shops globally (excluding US) RRP £85 from 1st June.
Jura is an island nestled off the West Coast of Scotland. With only one road, one pub, one distillery and around 200 people, Jura is as beautiful as it is remote.
The distillery was established in 1810 and reborn in 1963 to revive a community.
Inspired by our history and our island home, we create single malt with a true passion for the craft of whisky-making.
There are four classic bottlings in the Jura Core Range, which sit within a unique sweet or smoky flavour profile: the light and delicate Origin 10 Year Old and the rich and full-bodied Diurachs’ Own 16 Year Old each have a sweet edge, while Superstition and Prophecy are lightly and heavily-peated expressions, respectively.
