Tour of Jura Distillery

Master Distiller Willie Cochrane kindly showed us around the Jura Distillery. We thought you might like to join us for that.

Part 1: The Mash House

Part 2: The Tun Room

Part 3: The Still Room

Part 4: The Spirit Safe

What an absolute privilege to get a private tour like that from such a legendary distiller as Willie. A real highlight among many in our trip to Jura.


  1. Wow – what a fantastic behind the scenes look! I don’t think there’s anything else like this anywhere.

    Getting the process explained like that by such an amazing expert and seeing it all in front of you is superb. I might never get to Scotland, but with all these posts I feel like I’m getting to know Jura and that’s so amazing.

    Pass the Superstition! 馃檪

  2. I don’t like very much whiskey/whisky (and I’ve even been known to put coke in it – sorry!) but I do really like Isle of Jura. Seeing it being made here is so cool. I’m going to buy a bottle for my boyfriend… and maybe he’ll take the hint and one day we’ll get to visit. Hope we get to meet Willie when we do – he’s so lovely!

  3. hey guys
