Islay Trip: day two: Lagavulin

Thank you for reading this blog! All my posts have been copied to Wordpress.

We only did a short visit to Lagavulin Distillery. When we went from Laphroaig towards Ardbeg I was under the assumption that we would not have the time for a tour. We had not booked on either, but we popped in anyway. 

Note: later that day I found out that we could have had plenty of time if we had set the agenda on my phone to NOT shift the agenda by the one hour time difference we had had flying from Amsterdam to Glasgow. 

Se we parked and made some photo's of us in front of the Lagavulin sign. The sun was shining into the lens of the camera so the photo's are rather dark. Sorry!

The shop is cute enough. Not as extensive as Bruichladdich, or Ardbeg or Laphroaig but it contains all one needs I suppose. Seeing that we had "only a short while we needed to get going to Ardbeg to grab some lunch and wait for our tour to begin. So next time we are there Lagavulin will be on the list for the extended tour.

After getting back to the hotel, I managed to sorta work on a photo on my phone and I abused it into this photo below. I know, it looks horrible, but at least its light enough to make out my face!

Dreadfull photoshop
On to Ardbeg!

Just before going on to the next blog I would like to mention the excellent charity started by Ben Bowens for a children's heart surgery Hospital. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/adramaday


  1. A tour at Lagavulin is nice, but if you can only do one thing, I'd pick the Warehouse Tasting with Iain MacArthur over a tour every time :)
