Dance Information

Also see the dance Lagavulin (Ryer) by Chuck Ryer.

Lagavulin (pronounced "lagga-voolin") is a small village approximately 3 miles (5 kilometres) outside Port Ellen on the Isle of Islay, Scotland.

The name Lagavulin is an anglicisation of Lag a' Mhuilinn, the Scottish Gaelic for hollow of the mill. Two ancient millstones have survived in the town to this day.

It is best known for being the home of Lagavulin single malt whisky.

Lagavulin distillery is a malt whisky distillery in the village of Lagavulin on the south of the island of Islay, Scotland. It distills spirit that is destined to become Islay single malt Scotch whisky.

It is said that Islay was the only place in Scotland where no excise officer operated between 1707 and 1823, and so many illicit stills produced whisky in the mid 1700s.

The distillery officially dates from 1816, when John Johnston and Archibald Campbell Brooks constructed two distilleries on the site. Lagavulin is publicly owned by Diageo PLC, the company formed by the merger of United Distillers And Vintners and Guinness.

The standard bottling is a 16-year-old, bottled at 43% ABV. They also bottle a Distiller's edition, finished in Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. Alongside these, they regularly release a 12-year-old cask strength version and various older and rarer expressions.
