Lagavulin is owned by Diageo PLC, the company formed by the merger of United Distillers & Vintners and Guinness. It was previously marketed under the Classic Malts range of single malts, which is now defunct. In 2016, Lagavulin celebrated their 200 year Anniversay of the first official distillation although it is thought that the local islanders had been producing their own whisky long before that.
Lagavulin is known for its producer's use of a slow distillation speed and pear shaped Pot stills which assist in creating malts with rich textures, intense flavours of peat-smoke and sweetness while offering a dryness that makes them all such interesting malts.
The standard bottling from this distillery is a 16-year-old, bottled at 43% ABV. They also bottle a Distiller's edition which is finished in Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. Alongside these, they regularly release a 12-year-old cask strength version and various older and rarer expressions.
