Say Hello to Jura at Platform

Jura Single Malt Whisky will be visiting Platform at The Arches in Glasgow this weekend.  For two weekends this summer, starting Friday 3 August, visitors to Glasgow’s Platform at The Arches will be transported to the home of Jura Single Malt Whisky, as they are connected, island style, via experiential phone boxes that will let guests sample the new Jura range

Jura has one road, one pub, one distillery… and three phone boxes 📞 With very limited 4G or mobile reception, these phone boxes are one of the ways the islanders stay connected to each other and the mainland.

Visitors to Platform will get a taste of island life, as Jura’s phone boxes are recreated at the street food market. The copper clad phone boxes, a nod to the distillery’s tall stills, will be turned into a sampling bar 🥃.

Upon entering the phone box, you will find three drams from Jura’s new core range waiting on them and then, the phone will ring.

A local to Jura will be on the end of the line, who will speak about the ins and outs of island life and the stories behind the new range as they sample each whisky. There will also be a free sampling bar alongside the phone boxes serving the new Jura signature series.

Graham Logan, distillery manager at Jura Single Malt Whisky, said: “Who better to give Glasgow a real sense of Jura and our new whiskies than the local island community themselves. We are incredibly proud of the new range and wanted to make our guests feel as if they’re sitting in the Jura pub, glass of whisky in hand and part of the community – a taste of island life in Glasgow. We’re looking forward to welcoming as many people as possible to our phone boxes and can’t wait to hear what you think of the new range.”

Anyone who misses Jura at Platform can head to Glasgow’s Bananamoon, where head bartender Will Christie has created a unique cocktail using Jura Seven Wood and ingredients representative of Glasgow. The Cherry Oak Sour is a healthy take on a whisky classic, combining; Jura Seven Wood with Cherry Oak Kombucha created by Glasgow’s own ‘Clever Kombucha’, fresh Citrus mix, topped with cherry bitters and a lemon peel garnish.

The Cherry Oak Sour is Bananamoon’s perfect marriage of two great Scottish products. The Jura cocktail will be available to purchase throughout August.
