Set amongst the backdrop of the granite hills, strewn with the Neolithic standing stones used to mark the seasons stands the Laphroaig Distillery. For nearly 200 years a small team of dedicated islanders have worked at the distillery to create what is considered to be the most distinctive single malt in the world. While the team may change over the years, the traditional methods, ancient skills and absolute dedication to quality always remains.
