Laphroaig (La-'froyg) literally means "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay." Born from the streams and blue peat smoke of Islay, Laphroaig® is a Single MaltScotch Whisky with a distinct taste and story in every bottle. The secret to Laphroaig is that it benefits from the happy circumstances of where it is produced—next to ocean water and on land that gives Laphroaig a unique peaty taste. It is one of only a few distilleries that still uses traditional malting floors and dries and infuses its own malt with the thick blue smoke from old peat-fired kilns. It’s also the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky to bear a Royal Warrant bestowed by HRH Prince Charles. Further demonstrating the whiskey’s superior quality, Laphroaig 10-Year-Old and Laphroaig Lore earned Double Gold at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and Laphroaig Select received the Tried and True award at the 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
