Jura Whisky, Isle of Jura
Day 2

Jura Whisky, Isle of Jura

Next stop will be the slipway at Feolin, on the rugged, barren Isle of Jura, which is home to only one distillery, the eponymous Jura Sample the range, from the entry-level 10 Year Old Jura Origin, to the oily, smoky, heavily peated Jura Prophecy and the bizarrely tasty Jura Brooklyn, finished in American white oak bourbon, amoroso sherry and pinot noir casks.

Lunch in the Jura Hotel in Craighouse is a must, if only for the local langoustines, lobster and Islay crab. Then take a taxi to the north of the island to visit remote Barnhill, home to the writer George Orwell during the late 1940s. Orwell relished the house’s isolation and finished his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four here, famously declaring that Jura was “extremely ungetatable”.
