Jura single malt Scotch whisky has announced the launch of its distillery cask Fèis Ìle Edition 2021. Set for release on 6th June, this single cask will support the annual Jura Music Festival.
Matured for 18 years in a single refill sherry butt, this unpeated Jura single malt is said to deliver sweet aromas of candied almonds, toasted marshmallows and Scottish tablet. Intense ﬂavours of rich chocolate orange, treacle and Demerara sugar come through on the palate with a sticky sweet-salted caramel to ﬁnish.
Bottled at 57.1% abv, the single malt is non chill filtered and naturally coloured. It was distilled on 30th October 2002. Only 320 bottles will be made available.
£25 from each bottle sail will be donated to the Jura Music Festival. Now in its 28th year, this year’s festival will take place online during the last weekend in September and will host traditional Scottish musicians and bands from around the country for a weekend packed full of music. The £25 donation is equivalent to the cost of a ticket to the main Saturday night event which is the highlight of the Festival for many.
Graham Logan, Jura distillery manager, commented: “Despite the challenges of the past year, we are delighted to be back for Fèis Ìle 2021 with a very special limited-edition release which gives back to our community and this vital annual event which we’ve proudly supported over the years.
“When hand selecting this specific cask, I was looking for a whisky that was smooth, bright and lively, like the atmosphere on the island during the festival. This 18-Year-Old single cask bottling is a real treat for Jura fans. Our gulf stream-protected warehouses allow a longer maturation cycle and the sea spray and cask have given this whisky a long-lasting, salted caramel taste on the tongue.”
The 6th of June will mark Jura day at the Fèis Ìle. Jura whisky will host a series of interactive virtual events which fans can enjoy online. There will be two Instagram Lives hosted by Global Single Malt Specialist, Stephen Martin, will showcase the best of Jura, from Brunch cocktails with Kyle Jamieson of Edinburgh’s Nauticus Bar to the Jura pub lock-in with Andy Gemmell of The Gate in Glasgow.
The Jura Distillery Cask Fèis Ìle Edition 2021 will be available on 6th June to buy online via the Jura Whisky website for £145 plus shipping to selected markets around the world.
