Description

Laphroaig Distillery (/ləˈfrɔɪɡ/ ( listen) lə-FROYG) is an Islay single malt Scotch whisky distillery. It is named for the area of land at the head of Loch Laphroaig on the south coast of the Isle of Islay. The meaning of the name is unknown, but it’s commonly suggested that it means “the hollow of Broadbay.” The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, “Pròaig”, again suggested as meaning “broad bay”. The distillery and brand are owned and operated by Beam Suntory, the American subsidiary of Japan’s Suntory Holdings.
