Laphroaig WhiskyLaphroaig Whisky Distillery is situated in the south of Islay and was established in 1815 by brothers Donald and Alexander Johnston. The Gaelic name means "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay". Laphroaig Whisky is considered to be one of the most strongly peated flavoured of all Scottish Malt Whiskies.The distillery was sold to Long John International in the 1960s, and subsequently became part ofAllied Domecq. The brand was in turn acquired by Fortune Brands as one of the brands divested by Pernod Ricard in order to obtain regulatory approval for its takeover of Allied Domecq. Fortune Brands then split up its business product lines in 2011, forming its spirits business into Beam Inc. Beam was then purchased by Suntory Holdings in April 2014. Since 1994, Laphroaig Whisky has been the only whisky to carry the Royal Warrant of HRH, Prince Charles of Wales, which was awarded in person during his visit to the Laphroig Whisky Distillery.
