Home Scotch Whisky Islay Laphroaig

The distillery began in 1815 when two brothers, Donald & Alexander Johnston, leased the land of 1000 acres from laird of Islay and this land now known as Laphroaig. 

Laphroaig whisky has a distinct sweet note which comes from their preferred cask type used; ex-Bourbon barrels. Some Sherry casks are in the inventory and are mostly used for longer-term maturation. The unique elements that make Laphroaig includes their water source, the Kilbride Stream, hand-cut peat, floor malted barley, cold-smoking kilns, mash tuns, copper alchemy and the oak aging.
