Notes from Laphroaig
The distillery is situated in the south of Islay and was established in 1815, by Alexander and Donald Johnston. James and Andrew Gardner who set about building a rival distillery next to Laphroaig in 1836. They employed two experienced distillers, James and Andrew Stein, to take charge. Donald Johnston, owner of Laphroaig at the time, was disturbed on finding out that the new, Ardenistiel distillery, proposed to use the same water source. Specially when Donald was about to expand his business leaving him with a too small water supply.
The dispute lasted almost 6 years and ended abruptly when Andrew Stein fell ill and died. The Johnston Family ran the distillery until 1887, when it passed to the Hunter family. They in turn ran the distillery until 1954, when Ian Hunter died and left the distillery to his manager, Bessie Williamson, who came and remained on Islay for over forty years. The distillery was sold to Long John International in the 1960’s, and became part of Allied Domecq. Allied Domecq was acquired by Fortune Brands in 2005 and later to Beam Inc.
Since 1994 Laphroaig, which means ‘beautiful hollow by the broad bay’ in Gaelic, has been the only whisky to carry the Royal Warrant of HRH, Prince Charles of Wales, which was awarded in person during a visit to the distillery.
