About the distillery
Lagavulin distillery is an Islay single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Lagavulin on the island of Islay, Scotland.
The standard Lagavulin single malt is 16 years old (43%), though they regularly release a 12-year-old cask strength variety, a Distiller's edition finished in Pedro Ximénez casks and 25- and 30-year-old varieties.
Lagavulin was owned by United Distillers & Vintners, which has now become part of Diageo plc.
The name of Lagavulin is an anglicization of the Gaelic lag a'mhuilin, meaning "hollow by the mill".
Pronunciation : "laga-voolin"
"Exceptionally fine" was how illustrious whisky chronicler, Alfred Barnard, described the Lagavulin 8 year old expression he sampled during an 1886 visit to the distillery.
In homage to Lagavulin's timeless ability to produce exceptional malts, and in celebration of the distilleries 200th anniversary (1816-2016), this is a reinterpretation of the 8 year old from Barnard's era, available for 1 year only.
