Jura Fis le 2024

Jura Distillery has unveiled their rare Limited Edition single malt whisky release to commemorate this years Fis le festival, an event that attracts whisky enthusiasts from around the world to experience the whisky-making traditions of Islay and Jura.

The Jura Fis le 2024 bottling was distilled on 23 October 2008 then fully matured for 15 years in a single First Fill Bourbon cask no. 1605 and bottled at 55.5% ABV on 15 April 2024 and with fewer than 200 bottles produced, this extremely limited edition will be exclusively available to visitors to the Jura Distillery during Fis le.

Jura whisky embodies the deep connection between this Scottish island, its residents, and the distillery. The Fis le release celebrates this unique, close-knit community and the exceptional whisky crafted here.

Joe Ricketts, Whisky Maker, commented: "In this release for Fis le weve created a fantastic bottling that really showcases the distillerys character. On the nose, Juras characteristic flavour come together fruity notes of citrus peels and peach alongside mineral, oily characteristics that capture the coastal environment and a hint of toasted cereal.

"On the palate, peach crumble, vanilla pod and a slight zing of preserved lemon, rounding off with subtle mineral notes together with gorse flower, spearmint and Williams pear."

Jura Distillery Manager Graham Geddes added: "People who know Jura, know our whisky. Our island community appreciate each visitor, which is why this release is exclusively available to those that join us for our whisky festival. Jura quietly makes brilliant whisky. This release is no exception, celebrating the start of the summer with its fruity, balanced characteristics, ideal to share with friends and family. With our whisky we want to offer as many people as possible a truly unique flavour of our island home, and we feel this Fis le release does exactly this."

If you wont be lucky enough to visit Jura during this years Islay festival you can still find the current Jura whisky range available f
rom specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
