Inbox - The Week's Whisky News (September 1, 2017)

Welcome to Inbox.  For those new to WFE, Inbox is our weekly round up of whisky news and PR material that has found its way in to our email inbox. It was created as we cannot write full articles or do justice to every piece received. It features items from around the world of whisky and is published by us each Friday.

Within Inbox we aim to write a few lines detailing each press release/piece of news/PR event that we have received and provide links, where possible, for you to find out further information.  This is the news that has grabbed our attention this week.

The island distillery of Jura have unveiled a new limited edition single malt - the Jura One And All. It has been created as a celebration of Jura's community and those working at the distillery to make Jura whisky. Only 200 people are currently resident on Jura and they have helped to build the distillery back up after it re-opened 50 years ago after a long period of closure.

One And All is 20 years of age and has been matured in ex-bourbon casks made from American white oak. This has then been combined with Jura whisky that has been aged in ex-sherry, ex-sparkling Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon casks, plus ex-Pinot Noir barriques.

Jura One And All is non chill-filtered, of natural colour and bottled at the cask strength of 51% ABV. It will be available in specialist whisky retailers and online retailers with a cost of £120 a bottle.
