The last month at Whyte & Mackay has been quite busy. I've been working on multiple projects for both domestic & international markets. While most of these projects require me to be in the office, late last month I was sent to the Isle of Jura- a large, mountainous island in Scotland's Inner Hebrides region that is inhabited by only 180 people (but 6,000 red deer!). It's here that Jura single malt whisky is distilled in Craighouse, the only village on the island. Though Jura lies roughly 12 miles off the coast of Scotland & is only 60 miles as-the-bird-flies from Glasgow, it takes nearly 4 hours to get to via plane, bus, ferry & coach.
The 3 days I spent on the island were certainly not your typical days at the office! Because there is only one hotel/bar on the island, you tend to meet people, locals & tourists alike, very quickly. It was interesting to speak with so many whisky enthusiasts, some of whom had travelled from as far away as Australia & Japan.
The amazing natural scenery on Jura isn't done justice through pictures, but I'll post one anyway.
