Jura Unveils Islanders’ Expressions Collection No 1

Jura Islanders’ Expressions Collection No 1

Jura has unveiled the Islanders’ Expressions Collection, a new series of whiskies inspired by the creative community around the distillery’s island home. The first whisky is a collaboration with Amy Dunnachie, aka Amy Finds.

Amy Finds, a Jura native, is a story-telling jeweler who forages for objects across the island, creating new treasures with everything she finds, each telling their own unique story. Outside the bottle, her work is showcased via a pin she made, formed from copper and rope washed up from afar on Jura’s shores.

Jura Islanders’ Expressions Collection No 1 brings together Jura and Barbados, using ex-rum casks to instill an intense Caribbean flavor into the Scotch. The whisky reflects the vibrancy of Amy’s work, combining the bright and lively character of Jura whisky with the tropical fruit, warming sweet spice and richness

On the nose, the whisky offers rich tropical fruit, citrus, coconut, vanilla, and nectarine. The palate delivers enticing sweet notes of grilled peaches, bananas, passion fruit, papaya, and mango, balanced with a creamy finish with warm sweet spice and a lingering richness.

In March 2021, Jura unveiled a Rum Cask Finish single malt Scotch whisky. The offering is the third expression in the Jura Cask Editions range, following a Sherry cask-finished bottling, known as the Winter Edition, and a red wine cask-finished single malt.
