The Jura Distillery has today announced the release of its limited edition 2015 Tastival bottling, which has been launched to celebrate the start of its annual two day whisky festival on the Isle of Jura.

Distilled in 1997 and bottled this year, Jura Tastival 2015 (52% ABV) is said to have a rich, fruity and spicy flavour that has been influenced by its maturation in specially selected sparkling wine barrels from the chalk cellars of the House of Bouvet Ladubay in Saumur, Maine-et-Loire, France.

A collaboration with Drygate Brewing Co. will also see a limited edition craft beer released to pair with Jura Tastival 2015, inspired by the aromatic single malt. Made in an extremely limited run, the beer will be available to taste at the island’s craft beer session held as part of this year’s Tastival.

Commenting on this year’s release, Willie Cochrane, Jura Distillery Manager, said: “Our annual Tastival celebrations are much anticipated by Jura fans, so it’s fitting that we release an extraordinary, limited edition single malt each year to mark the occasion. This year’s festival focuses on bringing taste to life and Jura Tastival 2015 does just that, with a fruity, character-filled dram, that we’re sure our customers will interpret in a number of exciting ways.”

Jura Tastival 2015 is limited to 3,970 bottlings and will be available from today during the festival and from specialist retailers for a RRP of £85.00.
