About the distillery

Laphroaig distillery is an Islay single malt Scotch whisky distillery. It is named for the area of land at the head of Loch Laphroaig on the south coast of the Isle of Islay. The meaning of the toponym is unknown, but a commonly suggested etymology includes the elements "lag" (Gaelic: hollow), "breid" (Norse: broad) and "vik" (Norse: bay), implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay".

The distillery and brand are owned and operated by Beam Suntory, the American subsidiary of Japan's Suntory Holdings.

Pronunciation : "la-froyg"

Other Information

1977 was a memorable year for Laphroaig. Their distillery's lade of pure spring water ran to overflowing. Heather flowered early. A warm, wet spring brought a rich barley harvest.

Released in very limited quantities after being bottled in Spring 1995, this extremely popular 1977 vintage Laphroaig scored incredibly well in many whisky reviews.

Now incredibly rare and difficult to get your hands on, this is a high quality dram.

Excellent condition and fill level.
