The Isle of Jura is nestled just off the West Coast of Scotland. And with only one road, one pub, one distillery and some 200 people, Jura is as beautiful as it is remote.
Originally established in 1810, the distillery was born once again in 1963.

Over time the story became legend and the prophecy drifted from memory. Until 1938, when Charles Campbell, blind in one eye from the Great War, fell on hard times and led his white horse to the old pier for the last time.
