Laphroaig Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Founded in 1815 when brothers Donald and Alexander Johnston leased 1000 acres of land from the laird of Islay, this expanse is now known as Laphroaig. In 1954, a significant chapter unfolded as Bessie Williamson assumed the helm, becoming the sole woman to own and operate a whisky distillery. Having served as the secretary of the previous owner and de facto manager during his absence, Williamson played a pivotal role in the distillery's history.

A momentous year for Laphroaig occurred in 1994 when Prince Charles bestowed his own Royal Warrant upon Laphroaig Single Malt. This same year saw the founding of the Friends of Laphroaig community. In 2014, the ownership of Laphroaig transitioned as Beam Global was acquired by the Japanese group Suntory.

Laphroaig is renowned for its distinctive tarry iodine notes, complemented by sweet citrus undertones. This unique flavor profile is believed to stem from their preference for ex-Bourbon barrels in most of their maturation processes.
