Lagavulin Distillery

Located at a small bay, Lagavulin Distillery stands close to the ruins of Dunyvaig Castle near Port Ellen, on the south coast of Islay in Argyll and Bute, and was opened in 1816. Distilling of whisky on this site is thought to date back to 1742 when illicit whisky production flourished in the area and the distillery claims to be the oldest in Scotland. Within the distillery is a shop and exhibitions, guided tours are also available. It is regarded as one of the Classic Malts.
