Introducing our Limited Edition Tastival 2016 Bottling – Scotch Whisky News

Jura1

Flavours in this special expression inspire our first ever crowd-sourced bottle packaging

Once again the time has come for us to welcome honorary Diurachs from far and wide to our annual whisky festival, Tastival – a highlight on the calendar for everyone here on Jura.

To mark this special occasion, we can now reveal the limited edition Tastival 2016 bottling, with our first ever crowd sourced packaging, chosen by you!

Tastival celebrates new and exciting ways to enjoy whisky – and the creation of this year’s festival edition is no exception, with a triple sherry finish, using hand-selected casks.

To complement its sweet and intense flavour, we commissioned four artists from across the world to create a unique illustrated packaging design based upon their Tastival 2016 tasting notes.

Back in January we asked you to vote for your favourite design on our social media channels, and following heated competition we can now reveal that our first ever crowd sourced packaging is based on artwork by Florian Schommer.

The intricate design incorporates Florian’s personal tasting notes for the whisky, including apples, vanilla, maple syrup and roasted hazelnut.

This the last Tastival expression to be overseen by our much-loved Distillery Manager, Willie Cochrane, who announced his retirement last week. He hands over the reins to Graham Logan, a former Jura Mash/Stillman who has worked at his side for over two decades.
