Isle of Jura Distillery Launches the Standing Stone 30 Single Malt Whisky

The newest single malt from Isle of Jura

Lovers of peaty whiskies are well acquainted with the Scottish island known as Islay, but in between Islay (pronounced “eye-lah”) and the Scottish mainland sits the Isle of Jura. While Islay has eight distilleries scattered over its land, Jura has but one that bears its name.

Jura's core range of single malt whiskies includes the delicate Origin 10, the full-bodied Diurach's Own 16, the fruity and spicy Elixir, the lightly peated Superstion (which this writer, incidentally, is enjoying while writing these words) and the heavily peated Prophecy. Now the island distillery has announced another addition, its oldest to date, in the Standing Stone 30.

While many people probably know of the Scottish island Islay and its eight distilleries, they may not know of the smaller Isle of Jura. Jura has one distillery offering whisky lovers a new single malt, the Standing Stone 30.
