What Makes Laphroaig Special?

The definitive Islay single malt: Peaty, smoky, challenging, rewarding. One of the most richly peated whiskies (up to 50 ppm). The high level of peat gives it its characteristic taste.

Only one of a few distilleries that still uses traditional malting floors. It dries the malted barley over a peat fire made from hand cut peat from its own peat beds in Islay. This adds to the distinctive, pungent, peaty, iodine aroma.

Matured exclusively in first fill bourbon casks.

Warehouse location close to the sea, imparts a slightly sea salty character.

Appearance

Sparkling gold.

Nose

Huge smoke, seaweed, a hint of sweetness.

Palate

Islay peat smoke, full and earthy, tangy salt laden air, an echo of sweetness at the end, unforgettable.

Finish

Very long.

The island of Islay is situated on the rugged west coast of Scotland, a beautiful yet uncompromising

place at the mercy of the sea, wind and rain. In the corner of the island is a distillery in a special place, a “beautiful hollow by the broad bay” or, in gaelic “Laphroaig”. The Laphroaig distillery was founded here in 1815.

1815

Laphroaig distillery founded by Donald and Alexander Johnston on the site of a farm, beside the Atlantic, with a steady source of water from nearby Kilbride Hills. Laphroaig means ‘beautiful hollow by the broad bay’.

1920s

First major expansion by family member Ian Hunter. Laphroaig bottled as a single malt for the first time. Laphroaig was sold legally during prohibition in the USA on medicinal grounds.

1954

Bessie Williamson became Manager and Owner at the request of Ian Hunter. She started as a short term secretary and ended up staying for 40 years. Entrusted with the secrets of Laphroaig, she was one of the first women owner

1972

Bessie retired after making a number of improvements, including expanding the still house.

BY APPOINTMENT TO HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES, DISTILLER AND SUPPLIER OF SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKEY, D. JOHNSTON & CO., (LAPHROAIG) DUMBARTON.

The most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies.

ESTABLISHED 1815.

Laphroaig pronounced "La froyg", is an all malt Scotch whisky from the remote island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland. Laphroaig is a Gaelic word, and means "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay".

In the making of Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on the island of Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour.
