Products from Laphroaig Distillery
Laphroaig Distillery is a whisky distillery on the Scottish island of Islay, known for its smoky, peaty single malt whiskies. The distillery was founded in 1815 and has since become one of Scotland's best-known and most popular whisky producers.
Laphroaig whiskies are characterised by their distinctive flavour, which comes from the use of peaty water and the drying of malted barley over smoky peat fires. The whiskies are distilled in copper pot stills and then matured in oak casks that previously held bourbon, sherry or port. The distillery produces a variety of whiskies, including the Laphroaig 10 Year, the Laphroaig Quarter Cask and the Laphroaig Lore.
The history of Laphroaig dates back to 1815, when Donald and Alexander Johnston founded the distillery on the Isle of Islay. Over the years, the distillery changed hands several times and survived difficult times such as Prohibition and the World Wars. In the 1990s, the distillery was taken over by Allied Domecq and later acquired by the Japanese Suntory Group.
The distillery itself is a historic building, situated directly on the seafront and offering breathtaking views. Visitors can take part in guided tours to learn more about the history and production of Laphroaig Whisky
