Description: Awarded the International Spirits Challenge Gold 2008-2010. There have been distilleries at Lagavulin since the 18th century; though it wasn’t until 1816 that farmer John Johnston founded the first legal operation. A year later a second distillery appeared, this one run by Archibald Campbell. The two were united under a Glasgow trader, and in 1887, Peter Mackie arrived at the distillery, under whose guiding hand, Lagavulin was to become the last word in Islay malt. Miles and miles of peat bog in the west of the island provide the raw material which imbues the barley with that distinct smoky flavour. Not to mention the rich peaty water that runs down the brown burn from the Solan Lochs and into the distillery. In case you haven’t figured it out, the smoky, peated Lagavulin is seen as the ultimate expression of this region. Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition is double-matured in Pedro Ximenez cask wood, a wine derived from intensely flavoured sun-dried grapes, expertly selected for its raisiny sweetness to magically accentuate and deepen every aspect of the intense, rich character of Lagavulin. This expression of Lagavulin was awarded a Gold medal at the International Spirits Challenge between 2008 and 2010. The intense flavours of the Distiller’s Edition reveal themselves when drunk with just a drop of water. Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition makes a perfect gift for lovers of Lagavulin and peaty and powerful whiskies.
