Isle of Jura Scotch Whisky Distillery History.
The distillery is near to a cave where illegal distilling is known to have been carried out since the 1600s.
Established in 1810 by the Laird Archibald Campbell.
The whisky distilled at that time was a characteristic peaty Islay style malt whisky – not at all like the present day product.
Let out to many people over the years.
Eventually leased to a James Ferguson in 1875 and renovated in 1884 records show that it was distilling 65,000 gallons per year.
