"There's hundreds of ways to do things easier in life, but then it wouldn´t be Jura."
Willie Cochrane came to Jura in 1977 expecting to stay two or three years. Thirty-nine years later, he´s still there.
Willie worked his way up. He began as an engineer who knew nothing about whisky - but was a dab hand when it came to islanders' Land Rovers. Now he is a distillery manager like no other: the definition of Diurach endeavour, an intrinsic part of what makes Jura, Jura.
It's with much sadness he leaves Jura in 2016, but he leaves a legacy that´s as much a part of our landscape as the ground beneath our fett. Fourtuanely, before he goes there's just time for One for the Road.
