No one knows the full history of Laphroaig as it is lost in the mist of time.

What we do know though, is that the Johnstons started farming here around 1800, and that soon after Charles and Willie Doig were asked to do some “work on a distillery” at Laphroaig. By 1815, Laphroaig’s reputation had spread and the tax man was getting suspicious so they “officially” established Johnston & Johnston — the legend of Laphroaig had begun.
