Situated in a small bay near the south coast of Islay, Lagavulin stands near the ruins of Dunyveg Castle. The distillery is considered by many to be one of the longest established distilleries in Scotland because distilling at the site can be recorded back to 1742.
As one of Scotland’s most notable whiskies, Lagavulin embodies the flavours of the island on which it is produced, with its rich dark fruit and smooth smoky flavours complimented by a complex mixture of Islay peat from the moor and crisp sea saltiness of the island’s seashore.
Lagavulin is produced by Diageo plc. It is marketed under their ‘Classic Malts’ brand.
The Lagavulin distillery is located in the village of the same name, where can be found a stainless steel full lauter mash tun, ten wooden wash-backs made of larch and two pairs of stills: two wash stills and two spirit stills. It has an annual production capacity of around 2.4 million litres of finished whisky.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
