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.
Take it neat like a stalwart, or with a splash of soft water. Roll it around on your tongue. Release the pungent, earthy aroma of blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley, the delicate, heathery perfume of Islay's streams. Close your eyes, and imagine the waves lapping Laphroaig, "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay".
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.
