Lagavulin Distillery

Lagavulin - Legends take time

The definitive Islay malt—intensely flavoured, smoky and rich.

Lagavulin is said to be one of the oldest distilleries on Islay and is world-renowned for its smoky, peaty whiskies. The windswept Isle of Islay instils a strength of character into everything it produces and it's here, nestled in a small bay that the beloved Lagavulin whisky has been made for over 200 years. Discover our working distillery and book your tour today to learn all about our grain-to-glass process, the unusual pear-shaped stills and views of Lagavulin Bay. The Lagavulin Classic Tour allows you to see the process behind our whisky, experience our captivating still house and enjoy breathtaking views on a guided tour around our award-winning distillery. This comprehensive experience comprises of a guided tour, and three-dram tutored tasting. We also have our warm and inviting Malt Mill bar where you can enjoy some of our Lagavulin Drams or cosy up with a coffee on a cold Islay day.
