Jura 1984 released in honour of George Orwell

Jura 1984 Vintage single malt whisky has been released as a limited edition. There are only 1,984 individually numbered bottles available worldwide, with a retail price of £750.

This new rare and richly aromatic malt has been matured in American White Oak, Amoroso and Apostoles Oloroso sherry butt casks. Each bottle is non-chill filtered at 44%abv.

Jura 1984 Vintage honours the connection to the writer George Orwell who wrote the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four while staying on the island. Rebuilt in 1963 to revive a remote community nestled off the West Coast of Scotland, Jura has one road, one pub, one shop and one distillery which creates a uniquely crafted mix of whiskies completely unlike any others.

Willie Cochrane, Jura distillery manager says: “Every good malt whisky has a story to tell and Jura’s tale is particularly unique. We’re delighted to add another exciting chapter with the release of this extraordinary limited edition vintage. Jura 1984 Vintage is an uncompromising addition to our range in homage to the island’s most distinguished guest. 1984 is certainly a year to remember.”
