Islay
The Kildalton Distilleries
LAPHROAIG (1826

Port Ellen, Islay, Argyll. Licentiehouder: D. Johnston & Co, (Laphroaig) Ltd. Eigendom van Caledonian Malt Whisky Distillers Ltd. Onderdeel van Allied Distillers Ltd. Eigendom van Allied Domecq.
Gesticht rond 1826 door Donald Johnston, zoon van John Johnston, de eigenaar van Lagavulin.
De distilleerderij werd gebouwd op grond van de Torredale boerderij, die het eigendom was van een neef, ook een Johnston.
Er naast was de Ardenistiel boerderij gelegen, het eigendom van Walter Frederick Campbell, en hier werd in 1835 de Ardenistiel, Islay en ook wel Kildalton distilleerderij gebouwd door James en Andrew Gairdner, die zij verhuurden aan James en Andrew Stein van de toen bekende Clackmannan distilleer dynastie.
In 1847 stierf Donald Johnston, twee dagen na te zijn gevallen in een vat met het overblijf-sel van de eerste distillatie, de zogenaamde 'burnt ale'.
Donald's oudste zoon Dugald was nog minderjarig en zijn vertrouwelingen Peter Maclntyre, pachter van Ballynaughtonmore boerderij en John Johnston pachter te Tallant, verzochten Walter Graham van Lagavulin, de dagelijkse leiding van Laphroaig op zich te nemen.
Zij zorgden er ook voor dat de pachtovereenkomst met de nieuwe landeigenaar, James Morrison, werd vernieuwd in Februari 1854.
Toen Dugald de leiding van Laphroaig overnam, op twintigjarige leeftijd, ontstond er gelijk een probleem over de waterrechten, Dugald verweet Walter Graham de waterrechten op de Sur-naig Burn niet te hebben geregeld.
De ruzie werd beslecht, maar Dugald verkocht geen Laphroaig meer aan de Islay Cellar te Glasgow, het eigendom van Walter Graham.
Dugald stierf in 1877.
Dugald's vertrouwelingen waren Alexander Johnston te Tallant, John Crawford Graham en Colin Hay van Ardbeg.
Alexander Johnston van Tallant bleef distillateur te Laphroaig.
Alexander Johnston verkreeg in 1904 een nieuwe huurovereenkomst voor vijftien jaar, na zijn zusters Margaret en Ann te hebben uitgekocht.
De huurovereenkomst hadden betrekking op de distilleerderij, waterrechten, turfgrond, Texa eiland, Torrodale Park en de gebouwen van de Ardenistiel distilleerderij.
Na de dood van Alexander's vrouw Isabella kwam zijn zuster Catharine bij hem en na zijn dood in 1907 nam zij de leiding van de distilleerderij over.
Aangezien Alexander Johnston drie wilsbeschikkingen had gemaakt, rees er een probleem, de uitkomst was dat Catharine, haar zuster Isabella en haar man William Stevenson Hunter werden de eigenaars van Laphroaig.

Hun zoon Ian William Hunter werd na de dood van zijn vader in 1919, Catharine in 1926 en zijn moeder in 1927 de figuur die de uitbreidingen en moderniseringen zou uitvoeren.
In 1924 was hij de eigenaar van het eiland Texa en het landgoed Ardenistiel en zou dit tot zijn dood in 1954 blijven
Laphroaig bleef tijdens de Amerikaanse drooglegging legaal exporteren als een medicinaal drankje, dankzij zijn uitgesproken smaak, de invoer in Noorwegen bleef ook voor Laphroaig verboden, ook daar heerste een drooglegging.
In 1923 werd Laphroaig uitgebreid met twee ketels en Ian William Hunter investeerde alles wat hij had in de distilleerderij, in het geloof dat het alleen maar beter kon wareend m,
In 1933 kwam een einde aan de drooglegging in de Verenigde Staten.
In die tijd kwam een jonge vrouw, Bessie Williamson bij hem werken als typiste en groeide uit tot zijn rechterhand.
Ian William Hunter verkreeg weer voet aan de grond in Scandinavië en maakte een promotie-toer door Amerika voor het uitbreken van de tweede wereldoorlog.
Op weg naar Amerika bezocht hij op Jamaica Thomas Sherriff, betrokken bij Bowmore tot 1922.
Thomas Sherriff had op Jamaica een suikerriet plantage en rumstokerij.
Ian William Hunter kreeg daar een beroerte en kon niet verder reizen, hij verzocht Bessie Williamson naar Jamaica te komen, wat gebeurde, instrueerde haar en zij maakte de promotie-reis naar Amerika.
Ian William Hunter voorzag de mogelijkheden voor de whiskyhandel om gedurende de oorlog dollars te verdienen, maar door zijn slechte gezondheid, hij bewoog zich voort in een rolstoel, was hij niet in staat om zelf veel te doen.
Hij vormde een vennootschap samen met zijn accountant en een rechtkundige, met Bessie Williamson als secretaresse, en zij was het die de leidende figuur werd.
Ian Hunter stierf te Laphroaig op 28 Augustus 1954 en Bessie Williamson was zijn enige erfgenaam.
In 1962 nam Long John Distillers, onderdeel van Seager, Evans & Co, een belang van 25 % in Laphroaig, gevolgd in 1972 door de aankoop van de overige aandelen.
Bessie Williamson, toen Mrs Wishart Campbell geheten, bleef directrice van Laphroaig.
In 1968 werden er twee ketels bijgebouwd.
Mrs Wishart Campbell bleef tot 1972 directrice.
Long John werd in 1975 overgenomen door de bierbrouwers Whitbread & Co Ltd.
In 1974 werden er twee ketels bijgebouwd.
In 1990 verkoopt Whisbread Laphroaig aan Allied - Lyons Pic.
De zeven met stoom gestookte ketels kunnen ruim 2 miljoen liter spirit per jaar produceren.

Een blend van Laphroaig is Islay Mist.
Iain Henderson was tot in 2002 de distilleerderij manager.
De Mash tun is 8,5 ton.
De zes Wash backs hebben elk een inhoud van 42.000 liter.
De drie Wash stills zijn elk 10.900 liter.
Drie Spirit stills zijn elk 3640 liter, één 7280 liter.
De ketels worden met stoom verhit.
De produktiecapaciteit is 1,9 miljoen liter spirit per jaar.
Opvolger van Ian Henderson is Robin Shields die komt van de Amerikaanse bierbrouwers Coors, die een deel van bierbrouwers Bass hebben gekocht.
September 2004
De 'Friends of Laphroaig' bestaan 10 jaar.
Master blender Robert Hicks en distilleerderij manager Robin Shields hebben een 11 jaar oude Limited Edition gecomponeerd. Er werden 750 flessen gebotteld, met de hand van een etiket voorzien en met de handtekening van Robin Shields.

THE OLD MALT CASK 50o
Douglas Laing & Co, Ltd
Douglas House 18, Lynedoch Crescent, Glasgow G 3 6 E Q.
In 1949 Fred Douglas Laing established Douglas Laing & Co primarily as a blender and bottler for his Scotch Whisky blends The King of Scots and House of Peers, which are available today internationally.
Large stocks and reserves of aging Malts in particular, were laid down by Mr. Laing, many being guarded for 25 - 30 years specifically for the older blends such as the 25 and 30 Year Old KING OF SCOTS.
With more than 50 different Malts in stock, over the last 50 years from filling programme, it was obvious that the Malt Master would have certain favourites. These have variously been chalked off the times of regular quality control, as being of particular qualitative interest; both commercially, and for the pleasure of the Directors. It has been their particular perk, benefit and privelege to nose and taste some of the finest quality samples indicative of the Distillers's art.
It was judged by the two current owners/directors (sons of the founder, so nepotism is not dead!) that some of these stocks were 'too good to blend'. And so the OLD MALT CASK selection was developed in 1999 to extend those perks and benefits beyond the Director's tasting suite!
Initially it was felt that 50 different Malts commemorating the Company's 50th Anniversary would be approciate. That tally has now been exeeded but our preferred strenght of 50 % alc/vol is maintained. We believe this strenght creates a fine, round, full quality for various Malts when taken 'neat'. It also allows the regular consumer to know precisely how much or little water should be added to this artisan and craftman's distillate.
These selected Malt Whiskies have waited many years to reach their classic heights of qua-lity. Not only with your health in mind, but with a view to greater enjoyment, may we suggest that in the style of the founder, whose signature endorses your Malt, you enjoy its glass leisurely and slowly.
Douglas Laing.

Beam Suntory's iconic Islay single malt scotch whisky brand Laphroaig launched a 32-year-old expression last night.
The prestigious launch to invited guests at London's famous Connaught Hotel coincides with the distillery's 200th anniversary.
Distillery manager, John Campbell, the first native Islay man to make the famously peaty whisky, conducted a tasting by way of curtain-raiser for the £750 (circa US$1,400, €1,020), 46.6% abv cask strength expression.
He told the intimate audience that there are only 6,000 bottles available worldwide and all had been allocated. He opened by calling it a "big peaty slap in the face."
Owners Beam Suntory and distributors Maxxium claim Laphroaig is the number one best-selling Islay single malt scotch whisky in the world.
The 32-year-old expression, which was non chill filtered with no added colouring, was matured in first-fill ex-Oloroso casks. Campbell said most of the whiskies were 35 years old-plus.
Campbell went on the describe it as: "Red fruits, toffee, dates, meaty - bacon fat, fruity: apricots. Then licorice and a saltiness." He concluded by calling it "smacky and chewy, with sweet, smoky and salty flavours - not dry (he hates 'dry')."


Laphroaig comes from the Gaelic Lag Bhrodhaig = the hollow of broad bay.
