Somewhere around 1950 a few people on Jura got together and decided to restart the distillery, creating jobs for the island. The new distillery was built on the same location using some of the old ruined buildings. The distillery finally reopened in 1963 providing jobs for a quarter of the male workforce on the island. The whisky however changed as much as the appearance of the distillery and the taste became less peaty and more of a Highland character.
From the Isle of Jura comes this heavily sherried 21 year old single malt. Distilled back in 1998, the Island whisky rested in a single refill Oloroso sherry hogshead for over two decades. When 2020 came around, Adelphi bottled it at cask strength, with 265 bottles released at 54.2% ABV.
