  8. Isle of Jura

    The most inaccessible place on earth” – this is how George Orwell – the author of one of the most famed novels of the 20th century: “1984” – referred to this island. Though Jura is located only 60 miles in a straight line from Glasgow, it is not often for this distance to be so difficult to cover. A small, rocky island surrounded by a stormy sea forms a landscape where only around 200 inhabitants live in a few small settlements along a single street.

  10. Jura Distillery

    The first official whisky production plant was established on Jura in 1810. The hardships of existence in such an inaccessible place made the life of not only the few inhabitants but also the only production plant located there a misery. After many years the plant was forced to close down its production. But in 1963 the fire was lit again within the walls of the distillery, and fresh distillate flowed from the stills. The whisky manufactured here today is well known worldwide for its unique profile and breaking of the moulds.
  11. Paps of Jura


  12. Paps of Jura

    The Paps of Jura are three mountains on Jura that dominate its landscape. The first is called Beinn an Òir in Gaelic, or the Golden Mountain. The name of the second one is Beinn Shiantaidh which can be translated into English as a Sacred Mountain. The third is referred to as Beinn a’Chaolais, or the Jingling Mountain. Together with the distillery they form a symbol of the whole island and define its unique character. The three series of which this edition is composed refer to them.
