Laphroaig distillery profile
Founded officially in 1815, this distillery has an extraordinary history. It was the first distillery in Islay to be owned and operated by a woman. The distillery has a rich history and some authors claim that Laphroaig whisky was the only whisky that could go through US customs during the prohibition. This was, it is claimed, because it was declared as 'medicine' and customs officers would believe it was so given the whisky's notorious medicinal and pungent smell. Earlier in its history, the distillery was deprived of water, for a brief period of time, by the owner of neighbouring distillery: Lagavulin. These days Laphroaig distillery is owned by drinks giant Beam Suntory.
