Products from Lagavulin Brennerei
Lagavulin is a famous Scotch whisky distillery on the island of Islay on the west coast of Scotland. The distillery has a long history dating back to 1816 when John Johnston founded the distillery. The distillery has changed over the years and been run by different owners, but the distinctive production of Lagavulin whisky has remained unchanged.
Lagavulin whiskies are characterised by their rich and smoky flavour, which is influenced by the peaty bogs of the island of Islay. The whisky is made from malted barley that is dried over a fire of peat to create the characteristic smoky flavour. The whisky is distilled in copper pot stills and then matured in oak casks that previously held bourbon or sherry.
The distillery is known for its award-winning whiskies, including the Lagavulin 16 Year, which is a classic Islay whisky, as well as the Lagavulin 12 Year and the Lagavulin Distillers Edition. The whiskies are known all over the world and are appreciated by connoisseurs and aficionados alike.
The distillery itself is a historic building with a traditional design and a beautiful location by the sea. Visitors can take part in guided tours to learn more about the history and production of Lagavulin whisky, and can also enjoy a tasting of the award-winning whiskies. The distillery also hosts the Lagavulin Jazz Festival every year, where visitors can enjoy jazz music and Lagavulin whisky.
Overall, Lagavulin is one of Scotland's best-known and esteemed whisky distilleries and a major destination for whisky lovers from around the world. The traditional production and the characteristic smoky taste make Lagavulin's whiskies a unique and distinctive experience for the senses.
