Jura One for the Road – Scotch Whisky News

AA Jura1

Willie Cochrane, our celebrated Distillery Manager, has now retired after an extraordinary 39 year career.  It is with much sadness that we won’t see him around the distillery every day but he leaves a legacy that is as much a part of our landscape as the ground beneath our feet.

Over the years, Willie worked his way up from a young mechanic with little knowledge of whisky to become one of the industry’s most celebrated characters, reputed for his warm character and expertise in crafting award-winning malts.

In many ways, Willie’s life has great parallels with the distillery’s story: both chose not to take the easy or most expected path to shape Jura’s island, community and whisky, but each have become celebrated parts of the Jura story in their own right.

As such, we could think of no better way to mark his contribution to the island and its community than to release a very special new whisky called One for the Road – a 22 year old single malt and, fittingly, the final expression to be bottled in Willie’s care.

Join us in raising a glass to Willie and his next adventure.
