Many believe this is one of the oldest distillery sites in Scotland. In 1816, local farmer and distiller John Johnston established the first legal distillery here at Lagavulin (from the Gaelic Laggan Mhouillin, "the hollow where the mill is").
Today, Lagavulin's four onion-shaped stills are neatly nestled in a whitewashed tangle of buildings by the sea on Islay's rocky southern shore, guarded by the imposing ruins of Dunyvaig Castle.
There's nothing like living on Islay or dark, intense Lagavulin, which gets the slowest distillation of any
Islay malt, then spends sixteen years old oak casks before being bottled.
Sharp and bold, this is the great Islay malt. With plenty of peaty, deep, smoky flavours, it has an intense, long, ambrosial finish.
Lagavulin is Islay's majestic destination on a journey through the six Scottish regions where malt whisky is made.
