Jura Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Scottish barley, which is milled at the distillery and mashed with hot water in order to release its natural sugars. Once the barley has been mashed, it is fermented and then distilled twice through Jura’s 28-foot tall copper-pot stills. The stills’ unusual size and shape emphasizes the high esther notes of the barley, and produces a noticeably lighter and fruitier whisky.
