I became an honorary Gin Rectifier last night (May 9). I took an oath and now I am duty bound to promote the best interests of gin.
Called the Standing Stone, or ‘Camas an Staca’ in Gaelic, the new expression takes its name from the largest of Jura's eight standing stones.
The £350 whisky comes in a display case and the bottle is in-filled with copper wax, with a matching metal plaque.
The whisky will be available in selected stores across the world from December.
Jura distillery manager, Willie Cochrane said “The standing stones have mysteriously stood the test of time on the island, so it’s only fitting that we create an aged whisky in their honour.
The whisky’s long maturation in American white oak gives the spirit a quiet serenity, whilst its three years spent finessing in the finest Oloroso Sherry butts from Gonzalez Byass gives this spirit a commanding finish.”
Jura is owned by Whyte & Mackay.
