Lagavulin Scotch is produced by Lagavulin Distillery, one of the oldest distilleries in the heart of the iconic island of Islay, in Scotland. The distillery dates back to 1816 and was built by John Johnston and Archibald Campbell Brooks. Known for its slow distillation and unique pear-shaped pot stills, the brand offers a vast array of iterations including spirits matured in American oak, sherry-aged distillations, and single malts all created from over 200 years of historically relevant whisky manufacturing. Lagavulin’s classic and extremely popular 16 year old Scotch won four double gold medals from 2005 - 2008 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and went on to claim the Best Distillers Single Malt in 2017. Purchased by renowned liquor conglomerate Diageo in 1989, Lagavulin continues to be one of the world’s leading Islay Scotch producers.
