Receiving the slowest distillation of any Islay malt, Lagavulin is soon becoming one of Scotland's most popular and iconic whiskies. Offering rich peaty flavours and a long ambrosial finish, each bottle of single malt from the distillery has been perfectly crafted to supply a luxurious drink that is meant to be savoured. But Lagavulin Whisky's journey to perfection wasn't always as smooth as its taste.
Appearing on the Island of Islay in 1816, the distillery of Lagavulin was one of two distilleries constructed by John Jonston and Archibald Campbell. After time and for reasons unknown, the two distilleries became one and was named Lagavulin, an Anglicization of the Gaelic lag a'mhullin, meaning “hollow by the mill”. Nestled in a picturesque bay on the island, the still house was rebuilt in 1962 and incorporated the pear-shaped stills that it is now well known for and a new mash-tun in 1996. The distillery now aims to produce Lagavulin Whisky that embodies the flavours and feel of the island with Islay peat and crisp sea salt used in the process.
Here at Fine Scottish Hampers we are proud to make available a whisky that is not only rich in heritage, but also rich in flavour. Available in a 16 year old single malt, Lagavulin Whisky is definitely a product of love and dedication to providing quality. The perfect gift for any Scottish Whisky lover.
