Turas-Mara is Gaelic for a long journey. The 19th century saw many Diurachs leave Jura in search of far-off lands and pastures new. Jessie Scott was one such Diurach who wrote a heartfelt poem of her sorrow at leaving. “Through ne’er to tread they shores again, my heart with thee shall aye remain. Where’er I wander I’ll retain, my dearest wish for Jura.”
Turas-Mara is an expression matured in casks from around the world that honours those who carried Jura in their hearts as they journeyed to distant lands. Adorned with a compass to steer you home, Turas-Mara is a little bit of Jura to take with you, wherever you’re travelling.
Finished in a mix of bourbon barrels, Bordeaux wine and ruby port casks resulting in an array of enticing flavours of honeyed vanilla, succulent black cherries, fleshy grape pulp and juicy raisins.
Rich and Intense with black forest fruits and plums.
The Isle of Jura can be found nestled off the west coast of Scotland. After a lengthy crossing, the Paps of Jura, the islands three magnificent peaks, break through the clouds to greet your. To a Diurach this is their welcoming home. The bold outline captures the soul of the island with its strong community spirit, well-loved local characters, captivating tales and of course an unrivalled whisky from the distillery established in 1810. Their peaceful and fortunate way of life is the only one they know, the only one they’d choose. With its one road, one pub and one distillery producing the finest single malt whisky, Jura is, quite simply, in a world of its own.
