Laphroaig distillery


Laphroaig distillery is located on the south coast of Islay Island, near Port Ellen and The Kilbride Dam, distillery water supply.


Laphroaig dated 1815, when the Alexander and Donald Johnston brothers of the MacIain clan of Ardnamurchan founded the distillery, in 1847 Donald Johnston, the sole owner of Laphroaig, fell into a vat of boiling whisky and died, at that time Walter Graham, owner of Lagavulin, takes the reins of the two distilleries, Laphroaig and Lagavulin, while Dugald Johnston, Donald's young son, prepares to take over the distillery.


In 1857 the distillery returned to the hands of the Johnston family, who would keep possession of the distillery until 1954.

During this period Lagavulin and Laphroaig distilleries enter a legal cause, when Laphroaig cancels a commercial agreement in which it had agreed to sell its whisky to Lagavulin for the production of blendeds, which at that time included White Horse, invented in 1890 by the owner of Lagavulin, Peter Mackie.

After breaching the contract, in retaliation, Lagavulin decides to block Laphroaig's water supply, going to trial again, the resource fails in favor of Laphroaig this time, in response, a year later, Lagavulin hires the manager of Laphroaig with the aim of recreating the stills and thus producing an exact whisky to that of the neighboring distillery. Fortunately the attempt failed and today we can enjoy both distilleries, it must be said that the relations between the distilleries today are much more cordial.

The last member of the Johnston clan to run the distillery was Ian Hunter, Sandy Johnston's nephew who during the ban in the United States managed to persuade the authorities that it was not really whisky, but a medicinal spirit using as an argument the iodized notes and the opinion of an officer who was convinced that no one would drink such a powerful concoction for pleasure. When he died without children, he left the distillery in the hands of Bessie Williamson, a legend in Islay. After Bessie's withdrawal from the business in 1972, the distillery would change ownership on several occasions until it ended up in Beam Suntory's possession in 2005.


Laphroaig distillery is famous for printing on its whiskies powerful notes in aroma and taste of peat, smoked, iodized and marine.
