The company Laphroaig, on the Scottish island of Islay, was named after its location on a broad depression on the south coast of the island. The two farmers Johnston founded the company in 1815 and it remained in their family for 140 years.
Laphroaig is now owned by Beam-Suntory and has been supplying Prince Charles with single malts since the early 1990s. The taste of the whiskies is strongly influenced by the prevailing forces of nature - such as the sea water - which washes around the whisky warehouses by the sea. The salty air, the peaty water and the peat also make up the special taste of the Laphroaig whiskies.
A local saying goes: "We don't make friends quickly, but those we make last a lifetime". And the same applies to the lovers of this single malt whisky: once you get a taste, you'll love this whisky for life.
