The present Jura distillery was built between 1960-63 by Robin Fletcher and Tony Riley-Smith, on the grounds of a previous distillery (also called Jura) that had been founded in 1810 but closed and dismantled in 1901.The new distillery was producing malt more akin to the Highland style rather than the heavily-peated whisky of near-neighbors Islay, a strategy that has continued to bear fruit for Jura.
