Distillery Facts:
Founded on Islay's south [Kildalton] coast, legal distilling started at Lagavulin in 1816 by John Johnston. A second distillery shared the site which was first bought by the same family in 1825, before production was absorbed into Lagavulin in 1837.

The Lagavulin 8 Year Old was inspired by the visit of Victorian whisky writer Alfred Barnard to the distillery in the late 1880's.  ?During this visit, he sampled an 8 year old Lagavulin, describing it as ‘exceptionally fine’ and ‘held in high repute’ in his book The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom. 

Diageo said it had decided to sell Lagavulin 8 Year Old in the US, Canada, Taiwan, Japan and parts of Europe because of the ‘incredibly positive response’ to the 200th anniversary bottling.

Lagavulin distillery manager Georgie Crawford said: ‘The 8 Year Old is a signature Lagavulin-style bottling with a liveliness that balances out the Islay smokiness.  "We hope that Lagavulin fans will enjoy this bottling, just as Alfred Barnard did centuries ago."
