The Laphroaig distillery was established in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston, it is located in Port Charlotte, and is currently owned by Beam Inc. Since 1994 Laphroaig has been the only whisky to carry the Royal Warrant of HRH, Prince Charles of Wales. It is known for producing one of the most peated Islay single malt whiskys, among Lagavulin, Ardbeg, and Bruichladdich.
The Laphroaig 15yr was first released in the 1980s, though it was eventually replaced with the Laphroaig 18 Year Old. But now, in celebration of their bicentenary, they’re giving you a chance to get your hands on a bottle of their 15 Year Old single malt once again.
