You don’t need to be an expert to enjoy this whisky. And that’s what Jura Tastival is all about. The annual festival takes place here on the island, celebrating flavour and inspiring new ways to enjoy whisky. Every year Jura releases a limited edition Tastival bottling, which are always a little more experimental.

- Palate : baked apple segments dusted with Demerara sugar and cinnamon, kiwi fruits and hot mulled wine.
- Overall : a fusion of sun dried sultanas, glazed pineapple and lemon verbena provides the perfect aftertaste.
- The brand
Hours away from the Scottish mainland, miles away from ‘ordinary’; Jura might not be the easiest place to make whisky, but we believe it’s the best. One road, one pub and one distillery - and home to a determined community spirit. Free from distractions, we focus entirely on one thing – making the very best single malt whisky we can.This focus has now led us to a new place. A place reflective of our past, present and future where we can reveal a different side of our character. Signifying the start of a new chapter in our rich story, we have created a new signature style for Jura Single Malt Whisky, a style reminiscent of our past but with a firm eye on the future. An Island future shaped and supported with every step we take. The whisky itself sees a subtle smokiness brought together with a sweetness to create our new defining character. This sees us, for the first time, marry together the classic styles of Highland and Island malts, and unify these in one remarkable whisky.
