Due to time constraints we didn't do the full tour. Instead we did a tasting with a look at the stills and bottle store. Danielle, our guide, introduced us to 8 different single malts and was able to describe them and answer detailed questions. We weren't rushed although they were busy with other tours. A very professional tasting.

The island of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland, boasts 8 individual, working whisky distilleries. Add the distillery on the neighbouring island of Jura, and that's 9 in the vicinity. The Scotches here are renown for their peatiness, but that's not always the case; the distilleries diversify when they can. It possible to drive around Islay and see all... More

Distillery tour was very interesting & informative. Smelling the insides of used casks was great fun. Jura is definitely worth a day trip if you are staying on Islay. Unfortunately after a great tour the shop was not very generous with their samples. Staff seemed stressed and were very reluctant to share a second dram. On principle we decided not... More

Jura isn't the most accessible distillery to get to, but it is worth it. The island itself is very friendly and the tour was great Danielle was our tour guide and she was very informative and entertaining. One of the better tours that we have been on.

Our guide Fiona was lovely and friendly she made our trip very memorable. The whisky tasting was exceptional. Plenty of samples. The location was just beautiful and we had a lovely lunch in the restaurant next door where the staff were very helpful and friendly This location is a very worthwhile visit. The history of the distillery was fascinating.

Great whisky, friendly people, nice lunch at the restaurant...you want to do this. Just the ferry ride and drive to the distillery is worth the trip.

If you are going to take the risk of taking several ferry rides and a long drive through deserted moorland you wouldn't want to arrive at the distillery that didn't feel warm and welcoming. Worry not ... the distillery and indeed pretty much anyone you meet on the Island is as friendly as you could hope for. The distillery is... More

Scotland is the home of malt whisky and Islay and Jura are certainly known for their own particular style. Jura Whisky is one which may not be well know yet it is a dram well worth trying and once you have it could become a favorite. The distillery is small, in keeping with a Island whose population is only around... More

I have enjoyed Jura single malt for many years - one of my faves. So coming to Jura to see the place itself has long been on the bucket list. A bit of a dull day and we had tried, unsuccessfully, to book on the tour, as requested in the brochure, but no one would answer the phone on previous... More
