Lagavulin Distillery, Islay

This photograph, taken by Tom Baker, shows the Lagavulin Distillery on the island of Islay. The Lagavulin Distillery dates back to 1816, although there is evidence to suggest that whiskey was produced illicitly in the region as far back as 1742. Originally there were two distilleries on the site, one named Kildalton and the other named Lagavulin. By 1837, only Lagavulin remained.

The Lagavulin single malt produced at the distillery is reputed to have a strong peaty flavour, with iodine overtones. The whiskey is produced by White Horse Distillers and the standard malt is 16 years old, although 12 year old malts may also be sold.
