BY APPOINTMENT TO HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES, DISTILLER AND SUPPLIER OF SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY, D. JOHNSTON & CO., (LAPHROAIG) DUMBARTON.
Distilled on the remote island of Islay off the West coast of Scotland, Laphroaig is the most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies.
Laphroaig (La-froyg) single malt Scotch whisky has always kept itself a bit remote, like the islanders of Islay themselves. A touch aloof at first, but make the effort, broach acquaintance, and you'll have a warm and genuine friend for life.
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.
Huge smoke, seaweed, a hint of sweetness.
Islay peat-smoke, full and earthy, tangy salt-laden air, an echo of sweetness at the end, unforgettable.
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.
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’.
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.
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
Bessie retired after making a number of improvements, including expanding the still house.
