Jura 30 year old Standing Stone
CONTACT Whyte & Mackay, +44 (0)1283 217703
Jura Distillery has added a 30-year-old expression to its range called “Standing Stone” or “Camas an Staca” in Gaelic. The new whisky takes its name from one of the largest of Jura’s eight standing stones – a 12-foot obelisk that is part of a stone circle laid some 3,000 years ago to appease the spirits.
Distillery manager, Willie Cochrane, says: “The standing stones have mysteriously stood the test of time on the island, so it’s only fitting that we create an aged whisky in their honour. The whisky’s long maturation in American white oak gives the spirit a quiet serenity, whilst its three years spent finessing in the finest oloroso Sherry butts from González Byass gives this spirit a commanding finish.”
The whisky will go on sale at selected shops this December, RRP £350.
