Laphroaig Scotch Whisky Distillery History.
Lying just west of Lagavulin on the south shore. Alex & Donald Johnston started the Laphroaig distillery in 1815.
During 1836 the distillery became under the sole ownership of Donald Johnston. Unfortunately Donald died after tumbling into a vat of part-processed whisky in 1847.
His son Dugald was too young to take over so the distillery was temporarily leased to Walter Graham.
In 1857 Dugald Johnston takes over and runs the distillery until his death in 1877 leaving the distillery to his sisters and brother in law.
