Laphroaig Lore

laphroaig lore

Since 1815, each Laphroaig Distillery Manager has been the custodian of the craft to make one of the richest single malts in the world. Over the years, each have passed on their skills and traditions to the next generation to continue this legacy. To honour this passing of knowledge, our Distillery Manager John Campbell has created Laphroaig Lore, the richest ever Laphroaig.

Lore, meaning the passing of a skill or tradition through work of mouth, is the story of how we make one of the world’s richest single malt scotch whiskies.

Rich and deep with distinctive smoke, peat and seaside minerality – it is unmistakingly Laphroaig. This is a result of liquid being drawn from a selection of aged casks including first-fill sherry casks, smaller quarter casks and our most precious stock capturing the timeless passion and very essence of the Laphroaig Distillery.

This is our story. This is Laphroaig Lore.
