New Booze: Brooklyn Scotch Whisky by Jura

Jura introduces Brooklyn Single Malt

137387In 2013, Jura brought together 12 Brooklyn artisans to co-collaborate on Kings County's first single malt Scotch whisky.

Jura Brooklyn has been aged up to 16 years in American White Oak Bourbon, Amoroso Sherry and Pinot Noir casks. Jura Brooklyn retails for a suggested price of $79.99.

Jura's Master Distiller, Mr. Willie Tait, traveled across the Atlantic to the streets of Williamsburg, Park Slope, Bushwick and every neighborhood in between, with one objective: to craft a world-class single malt Scotch, chosen by and for the people of Brooklyn. 

Tait met with his hand-picked team (Bedford Cheese Shop, Brooklyn Winery, The Richardson, Post Office, Fine & Raw, New York City Food Truck Association, BAM, Brooklyn Brewery, Noorman's Kil, Vimbly, Buttermilk Channel and Brooklyn Magazine) in New York's famed borough, armed with six different cask samples each reflecting the distinctive flavors of Brooklyn's heritage (such as BBQ, Egg Cream and Artisanal Chocolate). During a series of blending sessions held in Brooklyn, the collaborators tasted different whisky marriages paired with fried chicken, artisanal cheese and fine chocolates, finally arriving at a whisky by Brooklyn, for Brooklyn.

About Jura: 
The Isle of Jura is nestled off the West Coast of Scotland. It's only 60 miles as the crow flies from Glasgow, but takes a wee while to get there. It's just one road, one pub, one distillery and one community. Jura whisky is a part of the Whyte & Mackay single malt portfolio.
