Laphroaig Malt whisky story: The 1745 rebellion split Scotland in half, pitting clan against clan. The McCabe brothers, being of McDonald stock, had supported the crown - the wrong half! By around 1810, they had changed their name to Johnston, moved to remote Islay and bought 1000 acres of farmland at Laphroaig for rearing cattle. Now to raise cattle, you must grow "feed" barley for the long winter months. And what do you do with the surplus barley? Well, ferment beer if you are English - but for an Islay Scotsman there is only one thing: distil whisky! By 1815 the word had spread around Islay that the whisky being produced at Laphroaig was particularly good - their source of water being very soft, peaty and lacking in minerals. It soon became more profitable to distill whisky than raise cattle - and in that year Laphroaig whisky was "officially" born.
